Provost Stephen Weiner, Arthur Washburn, and his wife, Pauline, admire a self portrait by Cadwallader Washburn, Class of 1890, on display in Washburn Arts Building. The building is named for the world renowned artist, whose work can also be seen at the Library of Congress, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and in museums in England, France, and the Netherlands. Arthur, whose grandfather was a second cousin of Cadwallader Washburn, received his graduate degree from Gallaudet in 1960 and has been involved in deaf education for many years, including a stint as interim superintendent of the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind. The Washburns were at Gallaudet on January 14 to see the changes on campus since Arthur last visited 15 years ago.
