Restoration of Iconic Stained Glass

Originally designed in the late 1800s by the renowned stained glass artist Maitland Armstrong, the stunning windows which adorn the foyer staircase will be removed this June for a desperately needed restoration. The lead work has well outlived its 80- to 100-year anticipated lifetime and has begun to show signs of fatigue. Artwork painted on the glass also shows the fade of time and will be restored to its original vibrancy.

The restoration will be conducted by Peters Studio, LLC, the highly reputable firm that recently built and installed the new Great Hall window in honor of Robert Bennett ’82. Peters conducts its restoration work out of Paderborn, Germany, so the windows will be removed and flown abroad to ensure the finest attention is given to their restoration.

We are in need of support for this project

 A generous matching contribution has been made for up to half of the project’s anticipated $30,000 cost. Please consider a personal gift in support of this long-standing iconic artwork of our dear Ivy. Contributions to The Ivy Club for this project can be made by mail or online at

Thank you for your consideration of support.

A New Look on the Web

Ivy’s new website is now online at In addition to new photographs of the Club House, there is improved payment functionality for graduate dues, undergraduate fees and contributions to the Ivy 1879 Foundation.

The site’s primary purpose is to acquaint Princeton underclassmen and new Ivy parents with the Club’s history and organization and with the purpose and activities of the Foundation. As before, the website provides the ability for graduate members to log in and access a database of the Club’s members. It is expected that Ivy’s internet home will continue to grow and improve. Suggestions are welcome, and may be sent to Molly Jones ([email protected]).

New email addresses are also in effect for our Steward, Betty Rascher ([email protected]) and Executive Chef Paul Chiara ([email protected]).

We want to extend special thanks to Board Governor Corbin Miller ’71 for his assistance with this project.
