Engineering in a Land-Grant Context: The Past, Present, and by Alan I. Marcus

By Alan I. Marcus

Engineering in a Land-Grant Context is a quantity of well-crafted essays that ponder the federal government's first foray into better schooling by way of reading engineering schooling on the nation's land-grant universities over the last one hundred forty years. The authors display how that heritage has framed the current and recommend the way it is probably going to steer the fashioning of the longer term. The specialist members, all of whom have studied and written prominently at the heritage of engineering schooling, be aware of revealing the severe traits and significant occasions of this 140-year heritage.

Sweeney also found himself representing Iowa State’s chemical engineers on prestigious panels. In one instance he shared the platform with such notables as General Motors Chairman Alfred P. Sloan, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, and Prime Minister W. L. 22 By the late 1920s, Ames’s chemical engineers had acquired an international reputation and federal connections. Their research during this period kept pace with their fame. The engineers managed to produce a good quality paper pulp from the stalks and established principles for large-scale cornstalk paper manufacture.

35. „ David L. Harmon for the purpose of extending similar aid in the development of the mining industries of the nation as already provided for the agricultural and mechanical arts,” introduced in the House, December 5, 1899; HR 7725, “A Bill To establish mining experiment stations, to aid in the development of the mineral resources of the United States, and for other purposes,” introduced in the House, January 31, 1900; S 3982, “An Act To apply a portion of the proceeds of the sale of the public lands to the endowment, support, and maintenance of schools or departments of mining and metallurgy in the several States and Territories in connection with the colleges for the benefit of agriculture and the mechanic arts established in accordance with the provisions of an Act of Congress approved July second, eighteen hundred and sixty-two,” dated May 16, 1900.

23 Other forms of cornstalk pulp seemed more promising. Chemical digestion of stalks in caustic soda yielded a jelly-like pulp that could be molded. Called maizolith—cornstone—the substance was exceedingly dense and a good electrical insulator. Sweeney and his crew projected it as “knife handles, switch buttons, knobs, gears,” and other high-stress objects. They were even more optimistic about the pulp-like material that resulted from attacking cornstalks with pressurized steam. This material could form synthetic lumber of varying densities.
