In the 1910s and 1920s, a small institution called Throop Polytechnic Institute dramatically reinvented itself, transforming from a manual arts academy to an engineering school, then expanding into a research institute. A century ago, it became the California Institute of Technology. Join us on Zoom for a series of presentations by Caltech archivists on the science, engineering, architecture, and community life of early Caltech.

This session, the fourth of our series, will include three brief presentations:

  • From High Volts to High Energy Physics
  • The Life and Times of Mathematician Olga Taussky-Todd, by special guest Judith R. Goodstein, University Archivist, Emeritus
  • Clubs and Sports
