  • In 1968 a Steering Committee for the History of Science and Technology was organized in the Museum of History and Technology (MHT). MHT was renamed the National Museum of History and Technology (NMHT) in 1969. Nathan Reingold and Bernard S. Finn served as Chairs. The Committee reviewed and approved appointments of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to research programs in science and technology at the museum. It also sponsored history of science and technology lectures, symposia, and colloquia at the Museum.
