Faculty Works Exhibit 2013

Willamette’s Mark O. Hatfield Library is excited to announce the 6th annual Faculty Works Exhibition, which is now open and will run through May 13th, 2013. This annual exhibit features the recent publications and creative works of faculty from every department on campus, including all three graduate schools. Works include published fiction and non-fiction, academic journal articles, artwork, music, design models, documentary films, and more.

Below are just a few things you will find on display.


Africa Week 2013 Display

Throughout the month of February, the Hatfield Library will display a collection of books and films — and a list of resources — for students interested in African culture.  These are some snapshots of the display that is currently on display on the first floor of the library.  All of the library resources can be checked out from this display!

For more images of this display, visit our Facebook page.

An Opening Reception is planned for Friday, February 1 at 6:30 p.m. For directions and more information please visit: http://sacred-scraps.com/

WU Campus Photo Collection

Inside the Old Library

Have you heard about the Willamette University Campus Photograph Collection yet?

The Willamette University Campus Photograph collection, comprised of more than 1,700 photographic prints, negatives, slides, and copy prints of sketches and blueprints, is a rich documentary resource covering nearly a century and a half of Willamette’s history.

A strength of the collection is the visual documentation it provides of Willamette’s ever-developing campus; particularly the buildings and landscape. Images show ground-breakings, construction, renovations, fires, and demolitions of various buildings. Transformation of the campus grounds, through activities such as the redesign of the Mill Stream and the removal of trees, is also evident. Aerial views of the campus provide yet another perspective of campus architecture and grounds and, to a lesser extent, downtown Salem, Oregon.

Willamette, TIUA, and American Studies Program students are depicted in various facets of their lives, both formally and informally. Students are shown interacting with faculty and administrators, engaging in studying, dining, and recreation, and participating in ceremonies and festivities.

Faculty, administrators, and staff are also represented, often in the capacity of interacting with students, officiating at an event, or posing for a portrait.

Additional notes: If a building has been known by more than one name an attempt has been made to list all names. For example, a search for “College of Medicine”, “Science Hall”, “Music Hall”, or “Art Building” will return images of the building that currently serves as the Art Building located at the corner of State and Winter Streets. Similarly, a search for the “College of Law” will return images of the Truman Wesley Collins Legal Center as well as the building currently known as “Gatke Hall” which formerly housed the College of Law. Some of the photos that you’ll find in this collection include the following.

The Archives staff is asking for assistance in identifying images. Please use the comment feature on the website if you are able to provide info relating to any of the images.

For permission to reproduce any of the images please contact the University Archivist, Mary McRobinson, at mmcrobin@willamette.edu.

Magadan: the people and the place

A new photography exhibit on the Magadan Region located in Northeast Russia has opened in the Hatfield Library. Magadan: the people and the olace is designed to introduce the audience to this fascinating place through the art of two local photographers, Pavel Zhdanov and Andrey Osipov, as well as displaying some Soviet-era artifacts.

The photographs capture the everyday life of the Magadan Region’s inhabitants, views of Magadan and other regional communities with their historical era-specific architecture, from GULag-era wooden private houses, to highly decorated Stalin Empire buildings, to the Khrushev’s plane rectangular multi-story apartment buildings, and show spectacular landscapes and beautiful nature of the Northeastern part of the vast Russian territory.

Pavel and Andrey are popular Magadan photographers working in the publishing company “Okhotnik” that in the past 10 years published hundreds of books, photo-albums, magazines and brochures about the Region. In 2010 similar exhibitions were held at the University of Alberta in Canada, and Malta. The authors do not use computer effects in their art.

Senator Mark O. Hatfield ’43 passed away peacefully this evening (Aug. 7, 2011) at the age of 89. He was a beloved son of Willamette University — a student, professor, dean and trustee. He was also a beloved son of Oregon. Elected the youngest secretary of state and the youngest governor in the state’s history, Senator Hatfield went on to serve five terms in the United States Senate — our longest-serving senator. Throughout his distinguished political career, he never lost an election…
