WSU, the Hill; a collection of pen-and-ink illustrations and an essay highlighting the seventy-five years in the history of Washington State University. A second edition of this book was published in 1966, with some new illustrations. Sally Adams was director of the WSU alumni magazine from 1959 to 1969; she passed away in 1995. Richard Thornton, looking back on the book in early 2018, recalls that "I was hired in 1960 as an instructor in the art department with a salary of $5,800 a year. I was coming from a position as assistant art director at Ford Motor Publications with a three year old daughter and a new son so we need extra income. After completing several drawings I was able to convince the Alumni Association to back the publication and Sally Adams to write the history. I drew the campus buildings not from photographs but from the front seat of our 1958 VW bug. I arranged to maintain ownership of the drawings so I could sell them for extra income. I don't think I have any of the originals. I left WSU in 1979 and accepted the position as Head of the Art and Art History Department at University of Connecticut. I retired from UConn in 1999."
