Scope and Contents of the Materials

The contents of the records convey the foundation of the Rensselaer Society of Engineers (RSE) whose roots derive from the Pi Eta Scientific Society, founded in 1866. This collection contains a copy of the 1867 minute book (obtained by Samuel Rezneck in 1968). Membership directories, the 75th Anniversary Register, and invitation memorabilia highlight the society's social life. The substantial portion of scientific papers make up the bulk of this collection.

Collection Historical Note

Pi Eta Scientific Society, RSE's predecessor, was founded in 1866 as an engineering honorary and evolved into the first independent fraternity at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1883. At Pi Eta's inception, every member was required to conduct scientific research and present papers to the members. RSE is still a thriving fraternity at RPI.
