Building Name: Michigan League, University of Michigan

Studio Name: Pond and Pond

City: Ann Arbor

Window Shape: 6 (gothic arched, over 2 vertical sections)

Date of Window: 1929

Subject/Title of Window: Hunt Memorial Window

Brief Description of Subject: The large stained glass window on the main stair landing of the League was donated by Ormand E. Hunt as a memorial to his wife Hazel (Hill) Hunt (1883-1927). While at UM, Hazel was by all accounts a "renaissance woman," very involved in literary and musical activities. The window is a fitting tribute to Hazel with the three lancets containing central scenes depicting maidens representing Science, Inspiration and Art. The key figure in the Art panel, surrounded by 5 other maidens, holds a palette and brush, while the Inspiration maiden), also surrounded by five maidens, holds the lamp of learning in her hand. The Science window's maiden holds a telescope. Very intricate silver stained leaf patterns make up the auxiliary panels. An inscription at the bottom memorializes Hazel Hill Hunt.
