Sather Professor Portraits

The series of photos below will give some impression of what the Sather Professor's office wall looked like during the period (up to 1996) when all the portraits up to that date were hung on one wall. (The portrait-covered wall received mention in Alessandro Barchiesi's Sather Centennial Lecture.) When an addition was being constructed on Dwinelle Hall and the Department was moved to temporary quarters for 16 months, it was decided to remove the portraits from their frames and place them in two large albums with space for 50 portraits each. Since 1997, when the new Sather Office became available on the new seventh floor of Dwinelle, the wall has featured only a portrait of Jane K. Sather and the pictures of the most recent incumbents.
