The World War One veterans of American Legion Post 85 welcomed the returning WWII veterans to this room of twenty-foot-high reflective cobalt blue glass inscribed with names of historic WWII battles, maps, military insignias, and American Legion emblems. The glass, manufactured in their Ford City Plant, was donated by PPG in honor of their employees who served in the war. The engravings were the work of artist Albert Van Dine, father of the KDKA personality, Wayne.
As a memorial to its employees who served in World War II, Pittsburgh Plate Glass covered the walls with cobalt blue mirrored glass and pillars of etched mirror glass.
Today this room houses a large portion of our historical collection, and also seats up to 125 people for our meetings and programs.
