Here's the notice in the Jewish Chronicle (Feb. 11, 1876) about the sum collected from charity boxes for the Volozhin yeshiva:
And here's one of the nicest pictures I've ever seen. Always makes me feel good. I'm not sure, but my guess is it's an outtake from Life's 1955 issue, part V in a series on The World's Great Religions; Judaism, which you can see here. This is apparently research, not a Beis Midrash, so my guess is that this is behind the scene at the Encyclopedia Talmudit, Mossad Horav Kook or something like that.
