Large 11.75 x 8.75” cabinet card photo album with a worn and detached covers, along with one torn page. This amazing album serves as a yearbook for MIT from 1890 and 1891, with 73 cabinet card portraits of faculty, instructors, and students, including four women. While the album itself has seen better days, the cabinet cards are in good condition and the scrapbook identifies each person except for one woman. The gorgeous endpapers also remain in good shape. One page is missing half, a few slots are missing photos and there are five loose photos. Some of the more famous individuals pictured include President Francis Amasa Walker, the economist, writer, and former military officer in the Union Army; Davis Rich Dewey, professor of economics and statistics and older brother to John Dewey; John Daniel Runkle, who would become MIT’s second president; solar astronomer George Ellery Hale; Protozoologist Gary Nathan Calkins; Margaret Eliza Maltby, one of the first woman to receive a Bachelors of Science degree from MIT; and Dixie Lee Bryant, who was also the first student to receive a B.S. in the Course XII geology department.
