Behind the Scenes: President Veitch's Swimsuit Edition Photo Shoot

When we asked Occidental President Jonathan Veitch where he wanted his portrait taken for the Summer magazine, he replied: "In the fountain." Not in front of Lucille Gilman Memorial Fountain, mind you, but in the fountain itself. 

With a little coaxing from award-winning photographer (and frequent Occidental contributor) Max S. Gerber, Veitch not only waded into the fountain dressed for work, but immersed himself for the cover photo. We thought you might enjoy seeing a few of the outtakes.
