Hulon Willis Jr. ’77, and The Sunken Garden from the ground and from the air.
HULON WILLIS JR. ’77: Close to 200 members of the Hulon Willis Association (WA), William & Mary’s African-American alumni organization, gathered in Washington, D.C. June 23-25 to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
GARDEN VARIETY: William & Mary’s 325th academic year is well underway and the Class of 2021 has seamlessly merged into the Tribe family. As cooler weather approaches, students congregate in the tranquil Sunken Garden to study and enjoy the calm surroundings and crisp fall air.
AERIAL VIEW OF CAMPUS, CIRCA 1935: In 1935, the Sunken Garden was laid out on the mall directly west of the Wren Building. Several buildings opened: Marshall-Wythe Hall, home of the School of Citizenship and Government, which was subsequently renamed James Blair Hall; men’s dormitory Taliaferro Hall; and athletic stadium Cary Field.
