After many months of preparation (and 150 years of famously impactful work) MIT's sesquicentennial is upon us: today marks the first of 150 days of celebration. The celebration begins this afternoon at the MIT Museum with a special preview of the 150 Exhibition, a collection of 150 objects chosen through the collective wisdom of the MIT community. These 150 objects evoke the Institute's distinctive culture, history, and accomplishments. Included too is a list of MIT Press' most influential publications. Thirty influential works from MIT Press' list of 9,000 titles highlight the many seminal works in science, technology, and other disciplines published since 1926.
Be sure to check these and the entire 150 Exhibition.
