Comment: There is a 1911 Curtis Memorial Window, "Christ and Mary Magdelene in Resurrection Garden", in the church, but it was made by John La Farge (the Census of Stained Glass Windows in America says that it is by Tiffany but presumably that is because of the entry in Tiffany 1910) (the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has a design drawing, which they attribute to La Farge, for the window) [CENS1992, ORG, SLOAN2017, MFA1910, DEDUCED]
