Tiffany/Duncan comment: Tiffany 1910 calls this the Warfield Memorial Window so likely Ethelbert Dudley Warfield, president of the college 1891-1914, was the person who organised the window with the Tiffany company [TIFF1910, DUNC1980, DEDUCED]
Duncan 1980 incorrectly states (p. 150) that the window was destroyed by fire [DUNC1980]
