Boston Stein Club (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)


Historical Note

The Boston Stein Club of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology was founded in 1944 by a local group of MIT Jewish alumni, whose purpose was to foster the spirit of MIT in business and social life, as well as stimulate cooperation among MIT alumni, faculty, and staff. Club members have raised funds for various scholarships, including the Jerome B. Wiesner Scholarship, the National Freshman Scholarship, and the New England Freshman Scholarship.Another fund established by the Boston Stein Club is the Karl Taylor Compton Prize, awarded each year to an MIT undergraduate in recognition of outstanding contributions to citizenship. When the MIT Libraries new Hayden building was built in the early 1950s, the Boston Stein Club sponsored the furnishing and equipping of the Libraries map room.
