Our guest speaker will be Dr. Alan Blumberg, George Meade Bond Professor and Director, Davidson Laboratory / Center for Maritime Systems.
Dr. Blumberg will focus on 146 years of Stevens history with marine research and innovation, and address the relationship between the Stevens Family and the marine environment since the founding of Stevens, focusing on members of the Stevens family known for yachting excellence, and specifically to their role with the New York Yacht Club and the America's Cup sailboat race. He will discuss how they balanced their love of marine engineering, pleasure in sailing and motive for profit. Dr. Blumberg will conclude the talk by discussing how marine innovation has continued at Davidson Laboratory, known for its world-renown naval engineering program and world-class capabilities in urban coastal engineering, both of which directly build on the legacy of the Stevens Family.
We look forward to seeing you and welcoming the ladies and significant others who accompany you.
