Abstract of InterviewGeorge W. McNelly, Professor Emeritus of the College of Technology, talks about early years and arrival at Purdue in 1952 at the Division of Applied Technology, which became the College of Technology. He left Purdue and returned in 1962 and served as Dean of the School of Technology. McNelly discusses challenges, responsibilities, initiatives and growth of the school. During his leadership, Knoy Hall was built, which President Ronald Reagan visited in 1987. He discusses the campus in the 1950s and 1960s. McNelly talks about the relationship between technology and engineering. Originally it was thought that the technologist would take the engineers design and translate it for the craftsman to build the product. McNelly received an Honorary Doctorate in Technology from Purdue University in 1997.
