Exhibition: Visionary Engineer, Harold Edgerton

Visionary Engineer, Harold Edgerton, showcases the new digital collections that include many photographs from the MIT Museum's now closed Flashes of Inspiration exhibition, as well as thousands of other still and moving images. The exhibit's goal is to reintroduce Professor Harold "Doc" Edgerton to the public at the MIT Museum, and to make known this valuable synthesis of the many digital archives currently located throughout the MIT campus. Opened November 14, 2009; closed September 12, 2011.
