The Virtual Wroxton Abbey website was adapted from the 2003 CD-ROM of the same name, published by Wroxton College. It was created by Wroxton College alumnus (Spring, 1968) Howard Goldbaum. He was assisted in the research at Wroxton Abbey by his classmate Angela Amoroso. During the production year the design input of Jackie Rejfek, then a graduate student at the University of Nevada, Reno, helped shaped the CD-ROM. The two years of photography and the additional year of production were supported in part by grants and other assistance from the College of Communication and Fine Arts at Bradley University, and the Reynolds School of Journalism (RSJ) at the University of Nevada, Reno. Dean Nicholas Baldwin, and other members of the faculty and staff at Wroxton College provided essential support and encouragement. Additional elements were photographed in 2010. In 2014 the site was completely redesigned by RSJ graduate student Jeri Chadwell, with all VR tours produced with newer technologies to make the project accessible on a variety of devices.
Howard Goldbaum is a professor at the Reynolds School of Journalism, teaching courses in photography and documentary multimedia production. His other projects include:
All Around Nevada, a virtual-reality tour of the Silver State.
