  • Czech artist Alfons Maria Mucha, born July 24, 1860, passes away July 14, 1939. One of his graphics of a damsel with a mug of beer will be sand-blasted into the windows of the future Study Hall. Works by this artist are not yet in the public domain, and are protected by international copyright law until 70 years after the creator's death, so this website cannot upload an image of the windows at this time. Whether the Study Hall requested permission to use the image for their logo remains unknown at this time.
