Born in London (1901), Leighton studied at the Slade and came to America in the 1940’s. Her work is in the Britich Museum, the Victoria and Albert, and the Metropolitan. She designed stained glass for cathedrals and mosaics for convents. She started the Club off with a splendid piece-successive artists would have a mark to aim at. Leighton died in 1989.
