Jeff Miller, UW Communications senior photographer, joined UW-Madison in 1990 at the same time as Bob Hamers. In his retrospective “Then and Now: 25 Years Photographing UW-Madison“, Miller is providing monthly highlights how the campus has changed in the last 25 years. Bob Hamers was one of Miller’s early subjects in November, 1990, and again in November, 2015. See the complete “Then and Now” on the UW News Service web site.
