UNB Art Centre

The Stained Glass Windows of Memorial Hall


Dedicated to John Douglas Hazen (1860-1937), UNB class of 1879. J.D. Hazen was Chief Justice of the New Brunswick Supreme Court, Premier of New Brunswick and served as Minister of Marine and Fisheries in Ottawa during the First World War. The window was the gift of his children and was installed on Founders’ Day, 1943.

The window presents a heraldic display of the decorations of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George, of which Hazen was a Knight Commander. It also presents the order’s motto Auspicium Melioris Aevi — the token of a better age. Above, enclosed in wreaths of laurel, are the scales of justice and the pen and scroll of statesmanship. The maple leaf figures prominently in this design and is a tribute to Hazen’s long service to Canada, as one of UNB’s most distinguished graduates and a prominent Canadian.

The medallions above display the crests of the province of New Brunswick, the cities of Saint John and Fredericton, and the dominion of Canada.
