Perspectives from the Archives: Past and Present Preserved

April 17, 2014 by

STEM courses and jobs? Yes, indeed!

This is a newly-found 1906 photograph of the early Physics and Chemistry lab at Regis University – then called Sacred Heart College. During more than thirty years of teaching, Fr. Armand Forstall covered chemistry, physics, mathematics, mineralogy, geology, and astronomy. And one more course – assaying. The college’s very employable graduates could assay – determining the gold, silver, and lead contents for Colorado miners in the nearby Rocky Mountains.
