Whitman's first graduates Whitman's first graduates, 1886

Penrose Library recently launched a digital archive of photographs illustrating the history of Whitman College. This archival exploration of 125 years of history, titled "Portraits of the Past," is the result of months of collaborative work. The project was conceived by former Systems and Applications Librarian Dan Martensen and carried out by Ben Roberson '14, Instructional and Research Librarian Ben Murphy and Archivist & Special Collections Librarian Melissa Salrin. Additional support for the creation of the exhibit was given by Director of Penrose Library Dalia Corkrum and the Office of Alumni Relations.
