Southeast Missouri State
Teachers College Seal

This panel depicts the seal of the Southeast Missouri State Teachers College and illustrates the library's book plate at that time. The inscription in the book reads "A Library is the Heart of the Institution it Serves," which has become the motto of the 75th Anniversary Celebration. This window panel also bears the artist G. Owen Bonawit's signature in the bottom right hand corner.

The stained glass panel highlighted here once hung in the east window of Kent Library when it was originally installed in 1939. In 1968, the panes were placed into walnut frames and displayed on the mezzanine level of the renovated library until 2007 when they were removed for safety during library remodeling.
