May 1966 — the Hackett Boulevard Cornerstone

Today we continue our celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of St. Paul’s move to its new home on Hackett Boulevard with two photographs from the ceremonies at the laying of the new building’s cornerstone on May 8, 1966. The first photo shows Suffragan Bishop Charles B. Persell, Jr. laying the cornerstone.

    I’m interested in Tiffany Stained Glass, and I was told that Paul Nance was your expert and that this is your blog. . Is there a way to contact you? Is there information about St. Paul’s Albany’s Tiffany Window? I’m interested in the move from wherever it might have been to the new church ,and what might have happened to the rest of it. I have an article on the window which describes it, and it includes a pretty bad photo of the window. Have you seen this? Do you have better pictures? etc.
