Page 12: Lawrence Saint at the National Cathedral

Lawrence Saint left the Bryn Athyn project in 1928 and secured a position at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. He worked there until 1936 and was the first head of the stained glass program. In applying for the position he listed among the other skills he could bring to the Washington Cathedral project -- “the ability to make sheet glass in the medieval style.” Undoubtedly, his superiors were aware of his intimate involvement at Bryn Athyn Cathedral. 

His series of windows on the Miracles of Christ in the National Cathedral are created in the gothic style and feature striated red glass in the backgrounds.
