MIT Museum
Slide Rule Exhibition Planning Workshop.
Report and images by Jim Cerny.   December 2004.

In 2004, InteliCoat Technologies made a gift of the K&E factory samples cabinet of slide rules to the MIT Museum. On November 6, 2004, MIT Museum curator Debbie Douglas made a presentation to the East Coast Oughtred Society Meeting, describing that gift and offering to host the 2005 meeting at the MIT Museum.

On December 8, 2004, Debbie Douglas organized a workshop to help in planning for the exhibition of the gift of the K&E factory collection. These pictures were taken informally by Jim Cerny with a 2.1 megapixel Nikon CoolPix 950 camera. Click on each thumbnail image to see the full version. See also the MIT Museum home page.
