'Martin Brimmer (1829-January 14, 1896) was an American politician and first president of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.'

'Sarah de St. Prix Wyman Whitman (1842–1904) was an American stained glass artist, painter, and book cover designer. Successful at a time when few women had professional art careers, she founded her own firm, Lily Glass Works. Her stained glass windows are found in churches and colleges throughout the northeastern United States. (...) Whitman won numerous awards and exhibited her work widely at venues ranging from the Society of American Artists in New York to the National Academy of Design. She received honourable mentions at the Paris Expositions of 1889 and 1900, and she won a bronze medal at the 1901 Pan-American Exposition.’
