Have a Happy Holidays.   

Hi, I’m Lindsay. I’m part of Team Archives here at the MSOE Library.


Today’s Throwback Thursday item comes from the December 1956 issue of the MSOE Bulletin Relay. On December 20th, 1956 MSOE graduated its first class of Mechanical Engineers. There were only six of them.  This article also lists graduates in the other programs offered by MSOE at the time.

Did you know that the Archives includes records from the Milwaukee County General Hospital School of Nursing (MCGHSON)?  This collection dates back to the School's founding in 1888.  This collection was added to the Archives following the merger of MCGHSON with the MSOE School of Nursing in 1995.  The collection includes administrative records, historical records, uniforms, artifacts, photographs and many more items that help illustrate the history of nursing in the Milwaukee area.  Here are a few photographs from the collection.  Nursing Class of 1892.jpg
