Kait and the Badger

One student's search for the voice of UW-Madison

Moving Forward. Looking Back.

History is constantly being captured. At UW-Madison the campus is ever-changing, and yet certain aspects remain timeless. Each week, with the help of the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections I’m using photography to take a look at the campus then and now.

IngrahamAre saddle shoes making a comeback? Fashion might have changed, but the mural in Ingraham Hall hasn’t (Circa 1955-’65).

We’re evolving, and this photo essay is one way to show it. If you have an idea for a photo, or if you see an image in the digital collections that inspires you, share it! Email KaitandtheBadger@gmail.com and we’ll do our best to bring your submissions to life!

    The mural in Ingraham Hall (as well as artworks in Social Science, Memoral Library, and the exterior of Vilas Hall) was created by my grandfather, James Watrous. Jim was a professor of Art History at the University, and also painted the Paul Bunyan murals in the Memorial Union. Like his children and grandchildren, one of his nieces is now a student at UW-Madison (a freshman this year). Thanks for posting this photo! — Meg Hamel, BA’87 and currently working at the College of Letters and Science.
