Then & Now: Machine Shop

Machine Shop

The circa-1925 machine shop in long-gone Whitall Hall was a prime teaching tool for the engineering program of the time. According to the 1925 course catalog, there were woodworking and metalworking shops, a drafting room, and a materials laboratory for the testing of boilers, engines, air compressors, and the like.

Come back tomorrow to see the machine shop "Now."
