Bruce Walker graduated from DePauw in 1953. After two years in the Marine Corps, he became a case officer with the Central Intelligence Agency (1956-1973), working on the Agency's Tibetan resistance project 1960-1968. While stationed in India and Sikkim during the period 1962-1968, he assembled an impressive collection of Tibetan thangkas, works on paper, and religious objects which he donated to DePauw in 2002. The exhibition is also accompanied by a full color catalog with contributions from DePauw University students, faculty, and staff.
