World War I Memorial Windows
Third Presbyterian Church

Dedicated January 1, 1922

These windows were given in memory of five young men from the church, aged 22 to 27, who died in World War I:
  • Lt. Harvey L. Cory
  • Lt. William L. Magill
  • Lt. Henry O. Sommer
  • Lt. Frank M. Stewart
  • Lt. Chauncy T. Young

The overall theme of the windows is the words of Paul: "I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith." (II Timothy 4:7).

The windows are fine examples of Art Nouveau naturalism, with the verdant green of the forest and organic motifs surrounding the figures. Each of the windows displays religious iconography, as well as military symbols each of our World War I Allies is represented by symbols in the various windows.

The windows were designed by Herman J. Butler, who had a long association with the Pike Studios of Rochester, where the windows were executed.
