History / Biographical Note

Historical note

In the summer of 2019, as the School of Engineering's Office of Alumni and Development was getting ready to vacate their office space for a renovation, they reached out to the University Archives about a box of "old records." The box was labeled "Representative Student Folders. 20's, 30's, 40's. Many special names." There was no information available about when the folders were collected, how they were selected, or for what purpose. The University Archives does not collect student files but this small collection offered a glimpse into the School during and immediately after the war years.
