Organizational History

The departments which became the College of Engineering and Architecture at Washington State University were in place when the school opened in 1892, with the first graduates in 1897. In 1946, a reorganization established the Washington State Institute of Technology as the entity which included the academic departments as the College of Engineering, the School of Mines, the Division of Industrial Research and the Division of Industrial Service. The Institute was again reorganized in July 1966 into a College of Engineering with academic departments, a Research Division and a Technical Extension Service. In 1984, it was redefined as the College of Engineering and Architecture.

Collection Description

The collection consists of two large (25 inches x 20 inches) scrapbooks, each approximately 60 pages. The scrapbooks primarily contain newspaper clippings related to the research, outreach, and projects of the Washington State University College of Engineering and Architecture and its faculty.

Due to the age of the clippings and the glue used in pasting them into the scrapbooks, many of the clippings are coming loose. Care should be used in moving and in opening these volumes.

Collection Arrangement

The collection is organized chronologically.

Separated Material

Internal Use: Location Note

Though fully processed, due to its size this collection is being retained in the accessions, UA 1990-37 at internal location 2-35-02-4. Do be aware that due to the size of the scrapbooks they take up both front and back of a given shelf. When the University Archives are processed to that location, this collection should be relabeled with the appropriate Archives number.
