This Series contains one cassette tape entitled "UMC Engineering Croft Lecture-1987: Dixie Lee Ray" (1987). The Croft Lecture is an annual event made possible by a gift from the late Helen and Huber O. Croft. Huber Croft was the Dean of Engineering at UMC from 1949-1962. The Croft Lecture Committee strives to identify an engineering topic of popular interest and to invite a noted proponent of that subject to deliver the lecture. Some of the lecturers besides Ray include: Dr. Max A. Faget, NASA Houston; Dr. Elton Cairns, formerly of GM Research Lab; Paul MacCready, Gossamer Albatross Designer; Dr. Edward Teller, Physicist; Col. Jack R. Lousma, Astronaut; James A. McClure, US Senator from Idaho; Dr. Margaret Maxey, Professor of Ethics, UT; Richard Richards, Astronaut; and Andrew M. Allen, former Astronaut, president of FIRST Foundation.
