I attended Quigley for two years in the early 1970's. I hope you can get in sometime to see the interior of the chapel. It's copied on the famous Sainte-Chapelle church in Paris, though smaller and less elaborate in decoration. The stained glass is simply dazzling. Or was to me as a teenager. Thanks for your wonderful blog.
