Hello, Barbara,

I've been involved in this search off and on for almost two decades now but have been unable to find a newspaper reference to the windows. There are newspaper references to the building construction and dedication and detailed information in the parish archives and diocesan archives but nothing pertaining to the windows. I have rechecked all this again in the last year.

What I did do to learn more was to stop in Chicago this past summer and visit known Kinsella installations. Two windows in St. James Lutheran Church were identical to two windows in our church in Lorain, Ohio, in design and actual cut of each piece of glass making up the windows. The quality of the painting of the flesh and hair was strikingly similar. Only the colors of the opalescent glass varied. I have attached an image. (Nativity, Lorain, windows are the outer images; St. James, Chicago, windows are the center images.) Thank you for your interest.

Sincerely,
Philip
