David Rathbun founded and developed the photography program at GVSU in 1981. He was born in Denver, Colorado in 1943. Rathbunlater moved to Illinois and graduated in 1965 with a bachelor of arts degree in literature from Wheaton College It was there that he discovered the efficacy of a strong liberal arts college education. He taught in the photography major that has become distinctive as a liberal arts program and continues to challenge and reward him as a scholar, a photographer, and an educator. He also continues to photograph about color and vision, and the nature of looking when color establishes the agenda of the visual experience.
