Exhibition: Scopes, Stationwagons and Solder: unexpected images from the Rad Lab and RLE Collections

In September 2002, the MIT Museum began a major effort to better preserve an extraordinary collection of photographic negatives. By June 2005, we had processed 24,000 negatives from the MIT Radiation Laboratory and the MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics. This exhibition, which originally ran from 2005-2006, highlighting some of the more intriguing images uncovered, is a celebration of the completion of the largest photographic preservation project undertaken by the MIT Museum up to that point.
