Lehigh’s materials scientists mark a 125th anniversary

History and national security, career advice and gratitude, and discussion of revolution—in material and product design—were on the menu Oct. 1-2 when the department of materials science and engineering celebrates the 125th anniversary of its founding.

The event began with a 5 p.m. reception in Iacocca Hall followed by dinner in the Wood Dining Room. The featured speaker, former astronaut Terry J. Hart ’68, gave a talk entitled “Enabling the Moon.” Hart is now a professor of practice in Lehigh’s department of mechanical engineering and mechanics.

The celebration resumed at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 2, in Baker Hall of the Zoellner Arts Center with a welcoming address by Helen M. Chan, the current chair of the materials science and engineering department. The celebration concluded at 3 p.m. with the dedication of the Arlan O. Benscoter Metallographic Preparation Laboratory.
