Scope and Contents of the Collection

The collection contains assorted reports of curiosity that had been previously located in the Fritz Engineering Laboratory Library. The reports apparently were acquired by various professors and department heads before there was a formal library. The Fritz Lab Library was included in the plans for the new extension of the laboratory (1954-1955) and located in Room 601 of the seven- story Fritz Lab extension. The library was discontinued in 2008.

In 1955 Fritz Engineering Laboratory, originally built by John Fritz in 1909-1910, dedicated a new seven-story addition known as the new Fritz Laboratory. From that time on there was a systematic filing of research reports. Before this date the research reports in Fritz Laboratory were not designated systematically. This collection of manuscripts was produced or collected by faculty prior to 1955.
