Rooted in Yesterday
Start from the beginning with the story that goes hand in hand with your stay at the hotels near Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA. To keep up with the growing scientific and technological advances across the country and around the world, William Barton Rogers proposed something more than another university. As a professor at the University of Virginia, he knew that the standard professional school was not the answer that America needed. Instead, he founded a technical school based on the principles from the German university model where learning was focused on research and laboratory work instead of simply classroom teachings.
Though the institute’s first classes were delayed by the outbreak of the Civil War, they were finally held in 1865 and even with financial struggles, it grew more and more popular, exploring electrical, marine, sanitary, and chemical engineering as well as physical sciences. It was so popular, in fact, that Harvard attempted to absorb it multiple times until the Supreme Judicial Court put an end to it. From the military and defense research for World War II to the institution of Arts and Humanities, the school continued to grow over the years, quickly becoming a household name in the world of science and technology.
