Becoming Caltech, 1910–1930: Presentations from the Archives, Session 5
- Public Event
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 fifth of our series, will include three brief presentations:
- Biology Comes to Caltech: Drosophila and the Morgan Lab
- Transatlantic Connections in Physics, by special guest Diana L. Kormos-Buchwald, Robert M. Abbey Professor of History and Director, Einstein Papers Project
- Humanities before HSS
