Lost & Found

During his days as an Ursinus student, Dennis Krauss ’63 was a familiar face in Bomberger Hall, the oldest building on the Ursinus campus.

He attended chapel there, performed in the annual Messiah concert and took political science courses taught by his mentor, Sieber Pancoast ’37. Now, a historic piece of Bomberger has found its way to Krauss’s home. The proud Ursinus alumnus purchased stained glass that is original to the iconic Ursinus landmark, constructed on the Collegeville, Pa., campus in 1891. Krauss says he bought the glass from the late Ronald R. Moyer, a friend and the first chief executive officer of the Peter Becker Community in Harleysville, Pa., where Krauss now resides. Moyer found the glass at a yard sale. “Ursinus was a special place to me,” says Krauss, who has the stained glass situated against a window in his bedroom so that the light catches the red and gold colors. “I often find myself just sitting and looking at it, reflecting on my time there.”
