1940 - 1941

Walker Evans Visits Wheaton

Walker Evans, a noted photographer and recipient of several Guggenheim fellowships, makes four visits to Wheaton during 1940 and 1941 to lecture and photograph the campus.

His images are published in the fall of 1941 as “Views of Wheaton College” in an edition of 3000 copies. The booklets were sold for $0.50 and were used by the Office of Admission to publicize the College.
