Page 15: Saint's Masterpiece - The North Transept Rose

Saint considered his masterpiece to be the North transept rose window at the National Cathedral which he created in 1932. Saint continued on at the National Cathedral until 1936 when the project ran out of funds at which point, suffering burnout Saint retired from stained glass altogether. The Cathedral decided to dismantle the "Division of Stained Glass" and gave title of the glass house, which had been built on his property to Saint in severance. The height of his life’s work was the creation of the windows for the National Cathedral.
