The Institute Archives and Special Collections has launched An MIT Chronology, a timeline detailing some of the major developments of the Institute’s first 145 years. A work in progress, the Chronology is ultimately intended to provide an extensive outline of the history of the Institute from its birth to the present, with authenticity provided by The Source for each entry–a citation to the relevant archival collection.
