Writings include draft typescripts for a book on stained glass, and possibly other articles, by Burnham that were never completed and/or published. Copies of published articles by Burnham include: "Stained Glass Construction and Details," (1924), "The Clerestory Apse Windows" (of Riverside Church in New York City; 1929), a catalog for "An Exhibition of Stained Glass by American Art-Craftsmen" at Springfield Art Museum (1931), "The Spiritual Significance of a Stained Glass Window" (1945), and "the Art and Craft of Stained Glass" (1951). Also found is a typescript of Burnham, Jr.'s thesis, submitted at Yale University, "The Rebirth of Secular Stained Glass." Typescripts and notes appear to consist of research notes for stained glass studies, and include a group of typescripts on the history of Detroit, with pencil sketches.
