Rare and Ancient
Jewels Taken from
CHICAGO, Dee. 11. Eluding three
watchmen guarding the building, a thief
gained entrance to the Art Institute of
Chicago on Michigan boulevard early
today and escaped with a collection of
rare Jewels valued at between $35,000 and
The collection was the gift of Le Verne
W. Noyes, a Chicago manufacturer, In
memory of his late wife. It was made up
of five pieces, all or ancient French
make. It Included a necklace of dia
monds and opals, a brooch of dia
monds, earrings, a watch, buckle and
pendant of opals.
Entrance was gained through a sky
light on the roof of the building. The
thief lowered himself with a rope, made
his way to the north wing of the build
ing, pried up a glass case containing the
collection and retraced his steps.
Secretary Newton H. Carpenter of the
institute said that the Intrinsic value of
the stolen Jewels was between $10,000 and
$15,000, but that their associations and
probable historical value might bring
their worth up to the higher estimate.
