Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

The PMI series contains photographs Clymer took while on assignment with the Princeton Materials Institute, which began construction in 1991 and formally opened in the spring of 1993 as Bowen Hall. The institute was later renamed The Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM). Most of the photographs document the construction of the building itself, the dedication, and portraits of faculty members.


The PMI series retains the original order of materials, which is primarily by year.
