Biographical Note

William F. Drumeller, Jr. was born January 23, 1923 to William and Elizabeth Drumeller and died March 25, 2006. Studying as a civil engineer, Drumeller attended VPI as a cadet from 1942-1943 and 1946-1949, taking a leave of absence in 1943 to fight in WWII.

Scope and Content

The collection includes VPI publications, school papers/notes/notebooks, ephemera, and photographs of William F. Drumeller, a civil engineering student and cadet at VPI from 1942-1943 and 1946-1949. The majority of the collection consists of student notebooks and paper relating to math and engineering courses. Publications and ephemera were collected by him during his tenure as a student, and presumably, as an alumni.

Series I includes notebooks, course work, and lectures notes, relating to engineering, math, and physics courses taken by Drumeller in the 1940s.
