Tiffany/Duncan comment: Tiffany 1910 calls this the Buckingham Memorial Window and so likely Mary Gordon Eldridge (Mrs. George H.) Buckingham, president of the orphanage, was the person who organised the window with the Tiffany company [TIFF1910, DUNC1980, CALL1909, WEB, DEDUCED]
Comment: There was an 1897 window located in the orphanage chapel, with the same theme and the same shape, made by the California Art Glass Works, and this was destroyed in a storm the night of 9 / 10 Mar 1904, and presumably the Tiffany window was a replacement [CALL1897, CALL1904, DEDUCED]
