If I look up from my computer terminal at work, and glance across the room, this is what I see. A memorial window to a young girl who died in 1898, it stood for many years in a children’s ward endowed by the family. Elizabeth Dennison is depicted wearing a white dress, black buttoned boots, and carrying a lily. Eventually, after many years in storage, it ended up with us, in the Medical Library.
