With informative essays by art and architecture historian Richard H. Putney, who was on the architect selection committee for the Glass Pavilion; architect and Bowling Green State University professor Katerina RŁedi Ray; and Toledo Museum of Art curator of glass and decorative arts Jutta-Annette Page.
