AGG received an inquiry about Mary Tillinghast, in particular concerning windows at Trinity Episcopal Church in Asheville, NC.  Here is a link for her that Al Tannler has on the Pittsburgh Landmarks website.  Does anyone have anything else, or do you know of someone who has researched Ms. Tillinghast?  Thanks.

TILLINGHAST, MARY ELIZABETH
A stained glass designer, died December 15, 1912, in New York. She was born in New York and studied in Paris under Carolus-Duran and Henner. Since 1882 she had been established in New York and at one time assisted John LaFarge with his windows. She received a gold medal at the Chicago Exposition in 1893 and gold and bronze medals at the Charleston Exposition in 1902. Among her most important works were a stained window presented by Mrs. Russell Sage to the Home for Friendless Children, the Hutton window in Grace Church, "The Revocation of the Edict of Nantes" in the New York Historical Society Building, "Urania" in the Allegheny Observatory, and mural decorations in the Hotel Savoy. Miss Tillinghast was the first to realize the difference that the electric lighting of churches would make in the spectacular effect of window designs. X - 1913.

Due to the discussion about M. Tillinghast here and on another Forum, some very interesting situations have been discovered, such as a relative of her's has done several years of research, has written several articles, and will have a self-published book out next year....and some previously unknown (to him) windows have been located.
