One of the striking features of the Wichita Carnegie Library was a set of Kansas inspired stained glass windows installed in the rotunda. Each window featured a large, central sunflower surrounded by a blue field sky. The windows were designed by Louise Caldwell-Murdock’s friend and business associate Elizabeth Stubblefield Navas. The artisan commissioned to execute the design questioned the deep blue color selection. Mrs. Stubblefield Navas' reply: “Come to Kansas and see our skies.”
The sunflower windows in Carnegie today are replacements which were installed by the City of Wichita in the 1990s. They stand as a reminder of both our great state of Kansas and the cultural contributions of Mrs. Stubblefield Navas.
