Who Knew WashU?
Question: An iconic photographer’s documentation of Japanese internment during World War II at a northern California camp was displayed a few years ago in the Kemper Art Museum alongside Japanese painter Chiura Obata’s work on the same subject. Who was the photographer?
Answer: A) Ansel Adams. Alumni Michael Adams, son of Ansel Adams, and Gyo Obata, son of Chiura Obata, came to campus while their fathers’ works were on exhibition in 2009, giving a public lecture on their fathers’ legacies.
Congrats to this week’s winner, Patrick Dillon, MD, of the School of Medicine, who will receive an “I Knew WashU” luggage tag!
