MIT 150

In 2011, MIT celebrated its 150th anniversary with symposia, performances, exhibitions and landmark events. Thanks to the effort of faculty, students, staff, alumni and friends, we told the story of MIT to the world—and to ourselves—more clearly and more confidently than it may have been told in decades. The Infinite History videos feature individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to their fields and to MIT.
