Date of Death: 03/31/2004

Biography: Born in 1916 in The Hague, Netherlands, he entered his uncle's stained glass studio as an apprentice at the age of 16. He also studied art at the Royal Academy in The Hague. Because there was no stained glass work available in the Netherlands following World War II, VanderBurgh came with his wife and three children to the United States in 1951 and settled in Zeeland. After working for the Grand Rapids Art Glass Company for several years, he opened his own studio in Zeeland in 1960. Throughout the past half century, VanderBurgh has created many stained glass windows for churches and other buildings in western Michigan, often doing all of the work himself, from designing and cutting to painting, firing and assembling. He says, "Working with stained glass windows has made life exciting for me, and it is still fascinating. I know I'm creating things that will be around much longer than I will."
