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. The first female Engineering graduate was Edna Nawanna Houghton in 1930, who returned two years later to teach in the Architecture department.
