Seventy-five years have passed since the 1891 opening of "Throop University," a school of arts and crafts that has evolved into the preeminent institution that is today's California Institute of Technology. This anniversary serves as an occasion to look back at our beginnings and to assess our future. It is rewarding to note the continuity of the past 75 years, to emphasize this continuity, and to recognize that changes in the Institute have always accompanied and have often preceded changes in the community and in the country. In presenting this pictorial account of the Institute's development, I would point out with pride that for 75 years Caltech has served the present and anticipated the future -- a challenge that will always be our goal.
