Biographical/Historical Note

The first meeting of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers - Atlanta Section, a local branch of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, took place on June 21, 1913. John Saylor Coon, the first Mechanical Engineering and Drawing professor at the Georgia School of Technology, was one of the fourteen founding members and the first chairman of the Section. A constitution and by-laws were approved in August 1916. Membership grew steadily during the decades following, reaching 600 members by 1977. The Section began holding monthly meetings early in its existence, with presentations on technical topics of interest to the mechanical engineering community. This practice continues in the early years of the twenty-first century.

The Atlanta Section, originally part of Region IV of the national American Society of Mechanical Engineers, became part of Region XI when it was formed in the spring of 1962.


Scope and Content Note

These images were separated from the manuscript portion of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers - Atlanta Section Records. This collection contains both black and white and color photographs from a few ASME-Atlanta events and awards presentations, 1968-1992. There is also a composite negative containing the images of ASME-Atlanta Fellows, 1946-1968.
