[New Work in Stained Glass and the Work of Lawrence Saint.]  This was the title of the March 8-April 30, 1954 exhibition at The Corning Museum of Glass.  There was no catalog for the exhibition, and probably because of a major flood in 1972, any printed materials to document the exhibition would have been lost.  However, there are black and white photos (8x10 format) of the exhibition (available for viewing, upon request to the Rights and Reproduction Manager) and flooded, warped color slides available for viewing at The Rakow Library.

Saint, Lawrence.  [Materials donated to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which were later transferred to The Corning Museum of Glass.]  Most of this material became part of the curatorial department.  Some may have been lost in the 1972 flood.  In off-site storage are cards with sample numbers and cards of glass.  If there are tools or drawings, these were not locatable in 1998.  He also stated that he gave formulas for paints and stains to the museum, but they also were not locatable in 1998.  To have access to the sample cards, one must apply to the chief curator of the museum.  Although the artist termed it "two wagon loads of materials", there was never a thorough inventory of what was received.
