Welcome to the archived version of the MIT Museum's online collections portal! This site was used to test features and content for the newly redesigned MIT Museum Collections site, which has now launched with over 150,000 objects. Please use the new MIT Museum Collections site for further research and discovery. This site remains online during the transition period but will not receive new updates or content.

The MIT Museum General Collection's biographical files contain photographs, film footage, publications, newspaper clippings, and other material associated with MIT faculty, staff, students, and alumni, as well as the creators of objects in the collections. In addition to the small images available on the Web, high-quality digital reproductions may be available for publication and other uses.

Search advice

If you are searching for information on a specific person, searching by last name in the search box above provides the best results; use the Advanced Search section to browse or to refine results if a basic search retrieves too many results. You can also browse through all people records by last name or MIT class year (alumni with multiple degrees are listed under the year of their undergraduate degree).
