AISC TURNS 100: A Century of Steel

AISC Looks Back at the 1930s

As AISC looks forward to the next 100 years of bringing together the structural steel industry, we're also looking back at the decades that defined both AISC and the world in general, starting from the very beginning.

Click through the timeline to discover some highlights of the AISC's second decade, including structural steel icons like the Golden Gate Bridge, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and Triborough Bridge. The 1930s also saw the premiere of The Wizard of Oz, the discovery of Pluto, and the world's first Twinkie.

This timeline is part of a yearlong celebration of AISC's centennial and joins a retrospective of historic articles, other interactive timelines, and more.
