Walker Evans visits Wheaton; lectures classes
Walker Evans, a noted photographer and recipient of several Guggenheim Fellowships, makes four visits to Wheaton during 1940-1941 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. The booklets were sold for $0.50 and were used by Admission to publicize the college.
