The fourth most important memory of the university – the 100th Anniversary of Riga Polytechnic Institute (RPI) – was celebrated on 23 October 1962 at the VEF Culture Palace.
The 100th Anniversary of the institute was also celebrated by Latvians in exile abroad, because at that time there were still many university graduates and students who studied at the institute until 1919. The IV Baltic Conference on the History of Science, which took place in Riga from 27 to 29 November, was also dedicated to the issues of university history.
In 1962, an exhibition on RPI was organized in honour of the institute’s 100th Anniversary. Using the books in the library’s holdings, there was a stand in the exhibition room that reflected the history of RPI. The exhibition as a whole was enriched by many photographs from the materials of the institute’s photo laboratory.
