Through the Lens: Stephen Lewellyn Photographs of the University of Chicago


Exhibition curated by Kerri Sancomb, Jay Satterfield, Daniel Meyer, and Valarie Brocato.

Works by photographer Stephen Lewellyn document University events, personalities, and campus scenes from the mid-1940s to the late 1960s. A local Chicago photographer, Lewellyn was commissioned for hundreds of photographic assignments on the University of Chicago campus. The prints on display, ranging from student activities to campus events, were made from more than 10,000 negatives Lewellyn recently presented as a gift to the University of Chicago Archives.
