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 on the science, engineering, architecture, and community life of early Caltech.
• 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
The final session in this series will be on Thursday, August 20th. Learn more about the entire series: https://www.library.caltech.edu/becoming-caltech-presentations
