Description: "In the middle 1940s there were no technical institutes in the South and few southern industries understood what a technical institute did. Following World War II, the explosion in technologies created a gap between the craftsman and the research-trained engineer. Industry needed a "technician" who could communicate with both engineer and craftsman. Dr. Van Leer, president of Georgia Tech, was approached by industry representatives about the possibility of creating such a training program. The result was Southern Tech." [From the Preface]
Note: Donated to the Archives by Dr. Tom Scott.
