"Camp Technology" (1936)

This vintage film from 1936 shows the daily routines of work (and play) at MIT's surveying camp for civil engineering students. It was known affectionately as "Camp Technology" and for years was held at a site on the shores of Gardner Lake near East Machias, Maine. MIT Museum Collections. [T6115]

Excellent footage! I suspect the building behind and to the right of the Seismograph Building is the Astronomical Observatory for determining latitude and longitude by the stars. Will have to look for station SPRUCE, which may be on a height of land of the same name. Regards,
