After WWII, faculty included Clyfford Still, Ad Reinhardt, and Mark Rothko. In 1946 Ansel Adams and Minor White began the first fine-art photography department, which included Imogen Cunningham, Edward Weston, and Dorothea Lange and faculty. In 1961 the school became the San Francisco Art Institute.
