Description Mr. Wilber "Bill" Lamb Bowers was a well-known Colorado Springs photographer. His maternal grandfather was Henry Lamb, a pioneer chemist and assayer who taught in the Colorado College Chemistry Department and who was the photographer of the famous early Cutler Hall photo.

Bill Bowers was a 1927 graduate of the University of Arizona, served in the U.S. Army during World War II, and, after the war, established a photography business in Colorado Springs with his brother-in-law, Lloyd Knutson. Knutson-Bowers Photographers had a long association with Colorado College.
