May 15, 2017 – Bob Abraham (’53 B.S. forestry and wildlife), a Christiansburg native and nationally known photographer of birds and marine life, has gifted a collection of 32 of his framed photographs to the college. Abraham’s work is regularly featured in the Roanoke Times and in national birding and wildlife publications, and is exhibited throughout the New River Valley. Abraham was the subject of a feature story in the fall 2015 issue of this publication.

“His stunning photography work ranks right up there with National Geographic and Audubon in quality,” said Dean Paul Winistorfer. “We are delighted to have received these exquisite wildlife images and have hung them in our Cheatham Hall conference room to kick off the college’s 25th anniversary celebration in 2017.”
