A very cool image of the Bent monument in front of the new engineering building at the University of Toledo was recently tweeted by Scott Jacoby (@Sparkurton). This is the home of the Ohio Zeta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi.



The News-Gazette (IL) recently profiled Harry C. Coffeen, IL B 1898, as an Illini (University of Illinois) Legend who was born on July 27, 1877. Coffeen played football and captained the Illini track and field team. After graduate school, he returned to Illinois to teach engineering drawing. Eventually, he moved on to Armour Institute in Chicago, today known as the Illinois Institute of Technology, where he was faculty manager of athletics and founded the Illinois Beta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi in 1906.
