The Technical Society of Knoxville Centennial Celebration
The Technical Society of Knoxville will hold its Centennial Celebration with historian Jack Neel serving as keynote speaker. Neely will discuss what was happening in Knoxville in 1921 that led University of Tennessee College of Engineering’s first dean, Charles Ferris, to bring together some of Knoxville’s best leaders to form the Technical Society of Knoxville (TSK). The society has provided technical support for Knoxville and Knox County since 1921 and continues to host technical presentations on multiple subjects and serve as a forum for discussion of timely topics. Before TVA and the Manhattan Project, TSK was active in Knoxville. When TVA and KUB came along, their employees and management joined in large numbers. Ticket prices include a one-year membership in TSK.
