According to the school history section in the 1980-82 handbook, Pitt was chartered as an industrial education center in 1961 and officially designated Pitt Technical Institute in 1964 (one year before this batch of handbooks begins).
The most recent handbook in this batch, which is from 2018-2019, seems to have a greater focus on informational text than years past. With so many additional programs and services, maybe it’s no wonder that it clocks in at a whopping 308 pages compared to the 1965 version’s 140.
