Abstract :
Seeks to reconstruct the history of the Industrial Design programme at Carnegie Institute of Technology [Pittsburgh]. Established in 1934, CIT's programme was the first of its kind in the United States. Eye witnesses such as the first ever graduate in ID, Maud Bowers, and Professor Robert Lepper, on the faculty from 1930 to 1975, shared their memories with the author in order to establish a more reliable account of the initial stages of the programme. Donald Dohner, who taught at CIT until 1935, emerges as mainly responsible for the curriculum which for the most part is still being used by most ID programmes in the United States. Finally, explores how the programme eventually developed and in which way it changed its direction relative to its original philosophy. ;
