Eugene Olcott, MetE’40, changed his major from electrical to metallurgical engineering because he believed “the equipment was better.”
Nearly 75 years later, in August 2012, the dedication of the Eugene L. Olcott Metallography Laboratory honored his memory – and his passion for technology – with a gift to S&T students: a material sciences lab in McNutt Hall filled with state-of-the-art polishing equipment.
Read more about this gift from the Olcott family in the Spring issue of the Missouri S&T Magazine.
Thank you to Richard Eimer, EE’71, president of the Miner Alumni Association Board of Directors, and his wife, Cathy, whose generous gift in support of Hasselmann Alumni House will name the Eimer Family Recycling Center.
Through the Eimers’ generosity and matching funding from the Koeppel Challenge, our alumni house will engage in sustainable environmental practices with a substantial recycling center. Read more about Hasselmann House and how you can make a difference.
