Finding more about a grandfather

March 1, 2013

Recently the Archives was contacted by the granddaughter of alumnus Charles E. Dougherty '23, who found his Drexel diploma in some family papers.  'On a whim,' she writes, 'I decided to look at your archives online. Imagine my surprise to see him in the photo.'

Mr. Dougherty earned a diploma in Civil Engineering from Drexel's Evening School.  He is, according to his granddaughter, 'the dapper gentleman in the lower right corner' of the photo.  Here's a closer look:

Here's a call to the Drexel community: do you have any ancestors who went to Drexel?  Let us know!
