Tiffany/Duncan comment: Tiffany 1910 calls this the Jones-Bleeker Memorial Window so possibly a Bleeker, or more likely a Bleecker, was involved with organising the window with the Tiffany company [TIFF1910, DUNC1980, DEDUCED]
Comment: The newspaper articles at the time said the theme of the window was the Good Shepherd, so either they were wrong, or the inscription panels were swapped at some point, or ??? [EAGLE1907, HLI1907, CHS1907, DEDUCED]
