50 Years of Florida Tech History Ready Soon for Your Coffee Table
From it’s humble beginnings as the “night school for missile men” as it was dubbed by Time magazine, to one of the top Southeastern colleges, according to Princeton Review, Florida Institute of Technology celebrates its 50th birthday in 2008. To commemorate the occasion, the limited edition coffee table book, No Small Dreams: Florida Institute of Technology, 1958-2008, by Jay Wilson, is now available for
The chock-full-of-photos book takes readers from the university’s first donation: 37 cents in bar change, given to founder and first president Jerome P. Keuper, to what the vibrant, 130-acre Melbourne campus encompasses today. From early classes in rented spaces to an institution poised to expand facilities 20 percent in 2008-2009, Wilson tells the remarkable story of Florida Tech in crisp prose and archival photos.
Reservations are now being accepted for No Small Dreams, which will be ready for distribution this fall. The cost of $45 includes shipping and handling. For more information, contact the Office of University Communications at 321-984-2974 or visit the website at http://411.fit.edu/coffeetable.
