The contributions of three craftsmen — Otto
Heinigke, Harry E. Goodhue, and William
Willet — key members of what Charles J.
Connick termed the "Early School" of
American stained glass artists, were critical
to the American acceptance of the English
Arts & Crafts revitalization of the traditional
materials, techniques, and craftsmanship of
the art of stained glass.
