Title from seminar brochure
One of a series of lectures, presented at the 24th annual Seminar on Glass, at The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, NY.
The Corning Museum of Glass has the opportunity to recognize excellence in the field of glass by awarding 2 separate awards - one for the history of glass (initiated in 1983), and one in the art of glass (initiated in 1984). Both awards are made possible by Leonard S. and Gypsy (Juliette K.) Rakow. The Rakow Award for excellence in the history of glass are Prof. Stanislav Libenský and his wife, Jaroslava Brychtová, of Czechoslovakia; and the Rakow Award for excellence in the history of glass was awarded to co-winners Dr. Danièle Foy, French scholar, and Dr. David F. Grose, American.
