From the Archives Room

Phew! It took nearly six months, but the Strakosch Collection is now complete with more than 230 items. There are university papers written in the 1950s, Otis memorabilia, blueprints for the Eiffel Tower and so much more! George Strakosch, author of the Vertical Transportation Handbook, contributed his papers to us over the last 10 years, and they span a career of more than 60 years. We are so proud of our collection and hope future generations will find it useful and interesting.

The next step is the Starmer Collection, sent to us in 2002 by Charlie Starmer before his death. We are just beginning to dig into this, but it looks equally impressive. We will keep you posted!
