Mind and Hand by
Call Number: T171.M422.S77 2005
Publication Date: 2005-05-05
Mind and Hand was undertaken by Julius Stratton after his retirement from the presidency of MIT and continued by Loretta Mannix after his death; Philip N. Alexander, of the MIT Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies, stepped in to complete the project. The combined efforts of these three authors have given us what Julius Stratton envisioned--"a coherent account of the flow of ideas" from which MIT emerged. Chapter 14 includes information about MIT's first building.
