Preserving The History of F.I.T.

The Exhibition Room for an Archives Exibition Room In Evans Library has been designated on the first floor of the library, and renovations have begun in a $40,000 project to get the long anticipated FIT Archives project off to a good start.  Dean of Libraries Dr. Sohair Wastawy has announced that they are currently receiving applications for a permanent full time university archivist after the position was established by Dr. Dwayne Mcay, EVP/COO in January.  Harry Weber's driving force in establishing and leading the emeriti history committe, and the additional efforts of university staff and administrative support have born fruit!

Emeriti will continue to be instrumental in the acquisiton of docmnets, photographs and memorabilia for the archives.  In addtion, they will play an important role in developing and implementing strategies to provide ongoing support for the archives.

Digitized Searchable Copies of "The Pelican", FIT's old offical newsletter, are now available for viewing on this web site.  Just click on "pelican" in the menu bar on the right to select from all available copies of the newsletter from 1975 to 1983.  Other copies are in preparation for publication.  Please send comments and/or suggestions to Tom Stephens at :  tstephens@cfl.rr.com

If you have, or have access to any F.I.T. historical material, please contact any of the professors emeriti board (names listed on this site).   We would like to preserve as much material as possible.

Paws to Reflect

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic. (anon.)
