In 1966, Henry Wilhelm ’68, with photography and writing assistance from John Phillips ’67, John Wolf ’66, and Robert Hodierne ’68, created a yearbook that captured the place and people of Grinnell. More a series of photo essays than a traditional yearbook, the project has an aesthetic that is captivating even today. The College administration, however, found the content a little too real, asked to have sections removed, and when they couldn’t come to an agreement with the editors, refused to allow its publication. It was eventually published in 1986. This exhibition of selected images is the result of Wilhelm’s complete digital remastering of the images for online access.
