Some reports and publications are in Italian. Also included are several folders related to Harleman's consulting work for Qatar Vinyl Company Ltd. involving its wastewater treatment plant.
The collection contains notes Frank Cilley took from lectures at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) by professor of civil engineering George Fillmore Swain in fall 1888, probably course 169, "Bridges and Similar Structures," or course 170, "Bridge Design." Also includes notes and abstracts for Cilley's 1889 thesis, "Methods of Operating High Grades and Steep Inclines."
The collection contains course notes for the Civil Engineering Department of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The bulk of the material dates from 1890 through 1917, including notes for courses on hydraulics and theory of structures (George Swain), stereotomy and warped surfaces (Dwight Porter), highways (Frederick E. Foss), and railroad engineering.
The collection of Massachusetts Institute of Technology class record books consists of six volumes relating to an undergraduate class/laboratory in Forging and also Filing Shop taught between 1874 and 1877. Student name, description of work, grades, and attendance are recorded for a class taken by both mechanical engineers and civil engineers.
