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 sixth of our series, will include three brief presentations:

  • Caltech Takes to the Air: The Fly Boys and the Science Guys
  • The Cosmopolitan Club and Students of Color
  • The Origins of the Athenaeum
