Over the past ten years the accomplishments of the Archives & Special Collections could not have been achieved without the diligence and hard work of its student worker staff. Over seventy-five undergraduates, graduate students, volunteers, and interns have logged countless hours and performed a myriad of duties processing, inventorying, scanning, and serving in numerous capacities throughout the department. In honor of their often unsung behind-the-scenes activities, we present the following mosaic of Jonathan Blanchard, Wheaton’s founding president composed of the portraits of this generation of student workers. We celebrate their faithful efforts and rich contributions to the ongoing work of Special Collections. Thank you!

The mosaic was created using an open source mosaic tool. AndreaMosaic is a freeware graphic art software developed and published by Andrea Denzler that specializes in the creation of photographic mosaic images. Click on the above image to see a high-resolution image from the original photos.
