The C.V. Starr East Asian Library, on the third floor of Kent Hall, is home to “one of the major collections for the study of East Asia in the United States, with over 1,000,000 volumes of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Tibetan, Mongol, Manchu, and Western-language materials and almost 7,500 periodical titles, and more than 55 newspapers,” according to the Columbia University Libraries. It also features a large stained-glass window on its east side depicting the concept of Justice, a memento of Kent Hall’s time as the home of the Law School (from 1910 to 1960). The stained-glass windows were donated by Anna Chesebrough Wildey in 1913 in memory of her husband, Pierre Westcott Wildey CC 1860, LAW 1863.
