The Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto is celebrating its 100th anniversary. This informal volume concentrates on the last half century. It examines the development of the Faculty and of its undergraduate and alumni organizations; the changing undergraduate scene since 1920, through a depression, the return of soldiers to university after two world wars, and the tempestuous sixties; the impact that the teaching staff and graduates of this one engineering school have had on their community and their nation through research and practice (including pioneer work in energy, transportation, construction, and industry); and ends with a look into the future of engineering education by the retiring dean of the Faculty, James M. Ham.
