From Website of St Chrystostom Church in Chicago

A still more generous gift was made by parishioner Dorothy Eckhart Williams as a memorial to her father Bernard Eckhart, president of the Eckhart Milling Company and a Chicago Sanitary District trustee and park commissioner for whom Eckhart Park on the near west side was named. Charles Connick's panel at the head of the north aisle was dedicated on November 7, 1937; the subject of the Ascension was selected because Mr. Eckhart had died on Ascension Day, May 11, 1931. Connick described the panel appeared in the bulletin: "The base quotation is from Saint Luke, 'And it came to pass while He blessed them He was parted from them and carried up into heaven, and they worshipped him.' ... Aspiration and worship may be said to dominate the entire design." The spiritual significance of the colors was noted: red for divine love, sacrifice and martyrdom, blue for divine wisdom, loyalty and truth, green for hope, springtime and victory, white for faith and peace, gold representing achievement and treasures in heaven, purple symbolizing both justice and mystery.
