Tower

1922 marked the return of a college annual at Wheaton College with the first issue of the Tower. After a 22-year hiatus the class of ’22 started raising funds to produce a yearbook because of a stipulation from the college faculty being that the yearbook would have to be fully funded before the “closing of contracts” so as to avoid the financial troubles of the Echoes. Similar in style the Echoe, the Tower presented an overview of the school year, covering the academics, sports, and social life of Wheaton College. The Tower has changed much over the years according to the styles of each issue’s time, yet the content has remained consistent throughout its run. A special Armed Forces Tower was produced in 1946 alongside the regular Tower to be sent overseas to Wheaton student serving in World War II. Over the years the Tower has won many All American awards.
