Black & white, silent film identified as "IIT 1956-1957" with images of Illinois Institute of Technology campus and buildings. Original format is 16 mm film; physical surrogate available in BetaCamSP. See staff for access to MP4 video file.

Internal evidence very strongly suggests that most of the film was shot in the spring of 1957. Example: I.D. students showing their projects to instructors at mid-point in the film include some who graduated from IIT in mid-1957 (Maureen Roberts can be identified).
