Biographical note

Don Anders was the University Photographer from about 1970 to about 2007. Most of the negatives in the University Archives negative collection were taken by him (although sometimes other photographers worked for the News Service). He presumeably started out in the News Service which was eventually split and became University Marketing. Don still takes photos for the University on a contract basis since he retired.
