Biographical / Historical
The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) can trace its origins to the founding of the Rochester Athenaeum in 1829. After joining with several different Rochester institutions during the 19th century, the Athenaeum finally merged with the Mechanics Institute (founded in 1885) in 1891 to form the Rochester Athenaeum and Mechanics Institute (RAMI). The Ramikin yearbook began at RAMI in 1912. It continued for the next 33 years. RAMI changed its name to the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1944 to better reflect the university's role in the field of technical education. At that time, Ramikin was renamed Techmila. Techmila ceased publication in 1993.
