About the MIT SEAL .......

 

MIT seal first adopted in 1864 The oldest official MIT symbol is the “Mens et Manus” seal that appears on MIT letterheads and other official documents. The seal contains many different items. The most prominent figures (the laborer at the anvil and the scholar with a book) represent MIT’s incorporation of science and industry into its curriculum. The year 1861 refers to the year that MIT was incorporated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Latin inscription “Mens et Manus” (translated to “mind and hand”) and the books that appear (entitled, “Science and Arts”) on the pedestal embody the idea of cooperation between knowledge and practical science.

The seal was adopted in 1864 and was engraved in 1865 for a cost of $285. The seal was modernized during President Howard Johnson’s (1966-1971) administration. Also, the seal has been hacked numerous times and several unofficial versions are popular with student organizations on campus.
