Baker House - The Historical Collection

This site has a bunch of stuff relating to Baker House, or more officially “The Everett Moore Baker House of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology”. Baker House is one of the undergraduate dorms at MIT, but it's more than just a pile of bricks designed by a pretty good architect and named after a pretty nice guy.

For us, Baker House was home. The friends we made there helped keep us sane during our stay at MIT. And a lot of those friendships are still going strong, long after leaving MIT and Baker House – on our way to conquering the world…

The “Baker Spirit” lives on !

75th Anniversary/Reunion


The Baker 75th Anniversary/reunion (for all classes, all years) will be Tech Reunion weekend (Friday May 31 - Sunday June 2, 2024). There will be a Friday evening “cocktail hour”, and a big bash on Sunday (brunch/lunch). Maybe a low-key event on Saturday.

Signups will be in parallel with Tech Reunion signups (starting mid-Feb). We're working on maximizing rooms in Baker for Baker alums. More news/details to follow…

So mark your calendars! Call your Baker friends!

Be there, or be square 😀

Nocturnal Workaholics

From the website:

“The Massachusetts Institute of Technology chose beavers a century ago as mascots because, like MIT students, they were skilled engineers and nocturnal workaholics.”
