Dillard University alumnus Tommy Holton recently displayed his panoramic photo of the Dillard campus, titled “My Dillard, May 2009,” at a presentation in Rosenwald Hall.
“My family has a lot of history with Dillard University,” Holton said, “and this is the view that we saw when we passed by the school. I worked 29 years at Dillard and my wife worked here for eight years; my brother and son work here too.” Four of Holton’s siblings also attended Dillard, as did his two children. Holton was accompanied at the presentation by his wife Carolyn.
“My Dillard, May 2009” is a beautiful panorama comprised of four separate photos, captured in May, that have been seamlessly meshed together. It depicts the length of the Dillard campus as seen from Gentilly Boulevard.
