    The Righteous Shall Receive a Crown of Glory was created for the United Methodist Church of Waterville, New York around 1901. The window was removed from the church and acquired by Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Randall, who in 1996 donated it to the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. At that point, it was in disrepair and in need of conservation treatment. In July 2012 the window was secured in 14 custom-built crates at the Corning Museum of Glass and taken to the Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass. Over the summer, it was restored by Drew Anderson, Conservator, Sherman Fairchild Center for Objects Conservation, The Metropolitan Museum of Art. On October 12, 2012, The Righteous Shall Receive a Crown of Glory went on public view for the first time in decades at the Museum of Biblical Art.
