About this collection

The Metallurgy Photographic Collection consists of images and publications related to the following NIST Archives collections: Aluminum from Clay, Studies of Metal Fatigue, Metallurgy Division, Metallurgy Research, Metallurgy Plating, and Prosthesis. The Metallurgy Division was established in 1913 for the purpose of testing railroad materials and technology. The Metallurgy Division performed a great deal of research during World War I and World War II, and in the 1950s began to focus on metal physics rather than traditional metallurgy. The Metallurgy Division has performed research in the chemical, physical, mechanical, and structural properties of metals, in particular fatigue and creep, as well as tensile and impact properties, corrosion, engineering metallurgy, alloy physics, lattice defects and microstructure, and electrolysis and metal deposition. Since the reorganization of the Material Measurement Laboratory in 2012, the metallurgy program has been part of the Materials Science and Engineering Division. [From: Measures for Progress by Rexmond C. Cochrane, p. 118-119, 127, 129; and A Unique Institution by Elio Passaglia, p. 27, 29, 231-232, 238; Responding to National Needs by James F. Schooley, p. 121, 255]
