University of Idaho on the Stained Glass Bucket List


Established in 1889 and expanded substantially over the next 5 decades, the majority of University of Idaho buildings were built with beautiful hand crafted stained glass windows. These particular examples were directly inspired by the Tiffany Stained Glass that was so popular in the beginning of the 20th century. Specifically notice the rich greens, blues, and opaque white stained glass. These colors as well as the ways the design and complimentary elements are signatures of the Tiffany style.

While we were unable to trace the origins of these particular windows, it’s very likely they were imported from New York City as a great majority of the stained glass throughout the United States was in the early 20th century.
