Conservation And Preservation Of Stained Glass Nationwide

To Whom It May Concern,

Please consider this my strongest personal and professional recommendation regarding the skills and talents of Kevin Hershey and Mike Burgraeff of the firm Hershey's Stained Glass Studio, Milton, Ia.

The Newcomb Art Department recently underwent an expansion and renovation of its c. 1917 James Gamble Roger building. Within the new construction schedule, plans were made to accomodate the 6 remaining Tiffany studio lancets originally housed in the College's first chapel. It was my pleasure to work with Hershey's Stained Glass Studio on the installation of these two exceptional Tiffany triptyches.

Kevin Hershey and Mike Burgraeff exhibited the highest degree of professionalism, and I can say with confidence that their work ethics are above reproach. The installation of the windows fell under my purview as Curator of the Newcomb Art Gallery. Mr. Hershey and Mr. Burgraeff arrived on site at the appointed time and stayed well into the evening if the situation required it. I was with them through every step of the installation and never did I experience an unpleasant moment.

I am aware that Mr. Hershey and Mr. Burgraeff are well trained in the installation and stabilization of stained glas through assisting Arthur Femenella, Jr., of Femenella & AssociatesAnnendae, NJ, with a number of his firm's projects. As you may know Mr. Femenella is an eminent scholar in the field of stained glass restoration and conservation; there is no higher testimony to Hershey's Stained Glass Studio's ability than being invited to paticipate in Femenella & Asscoates' projects.

Mr. Hershey's and Mr Burgraeff's skills as stained glass artisans are without question. Whatever the job, I am certain they will work efficiently and productively with a minimum of supervision. I do not hesitate to recommend them with enthusiasm.

Sincerely,

Sally Main
