Biographical Sketch

In 1925, during Tech’s first semester of registration, the College of Engineering had 313 students enrolled in its two-member faculty department. Three additional professors were quickly added to meet the needs of the enrollees, and in 1927 the faculty ranks numbered ten. By the 1954-1955 academic year there were thirty-nine faculty members. The Textile Engineering building was home to all Engineering classes in 1925 and was one of the few buildings open on the first day of school. Additional buildings were added in 1928, 1950, and 1951. Today, the College of Engineering is one of the largest colleges in the Texas Tech University System. It was renamed the "Edward E. Whitacre Jr. College of Engineering" in 2008 in honor of one of its most distinguished alumnus.

Scope and Content

The donation consists of office files, news clippings, memorabilia, photographs and audio/visual recordings concerning the Texas Tech University College of Engineering, its faculty, students and alumni. The materials were produced and/or collected by an office within the College of Engineering which its handles media and public relations.

The office that donated this collection was called "Engineering Services" at one time, though that may not have been its official title. Its staff researched and produced news releases, newsletters and magazines such as "Engineering Our Future" and "Engineering Today."

The oversized, encapsulated photographs have been placed into an oversized folder.
