Put out my hands and touched the face of God.
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
And, while the silent lifting mind I've trod
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
I've chased the shouting wind along and flung--
High in the sunlit silence, hovering there,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings.
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
I HAVE FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT I HAVE FINISHED MY COURSE HENCEFORTH THERE IS LAID UP FOR ME A CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH THE LORD SHALL GIVE ME

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact donald20@msu.edu
