Linsly-Chittenden Hall: Mary Hartwell Lusk

After the death of Mary Hartwell Chittenden Lusk, her father, Simeon Baldwin Chittenden (Hon. MA 1871) commissioned Louis Comfort Tiffany to design a window to memorialize his daughter in what was then the main reading room of Yale’s new library, Chittenden Hall (now LC 102). One of the central kneeling allegorical figures holds a book which features Mary’s name; the dedication is reinforced on a plaque to the right of the window.
