Classes from 1940 to 1949

NCE in the 1940's:
  • Allan Cullimore was NCE's President until 1949.
  • NCE acquired the Newark Orphan Asylum (later Eberhart Hall, and most recently the Eberhard Hall NJIT Alumni Center) in 1948.
  • Like virtually every institution in America, NCE went on a war footing, and academic programs were accelerated and students had to spend their summers working in war industries.
  • After WWII, the G.I. Bill opened the door to educational opportunities.  At the start of the 1949-1950 academic year, there were nearly 6,000 students enrolled at NCE.
