Cornell Engineering marked 150 years of
innovation and success with a number of events
as part of its Sesquicentennial Celebration on Oct.
23-25. Some of the events included:

was posthumously named an American Society of
Civil Engineers (ASCE) Fellow after being denied
membership in the early 1900s. Also pictured,
