DAYTON, Ohio — The Engineers Club of Dayton was formed in 1914 by Colonel Edward Deeds and Charles Kettering, as a hub for industry and technology.

“Initially inspired by automotive, and then gravitated toward aviation, and always followed the aviation heritage of the area,” said Steven Smith, a Dayton area Chief Systems Engineer with the Air Force.

Smith, a former president of The Engineers Club of Dayton, joined the club in the 90s as a young professional in the community working at General Motors, knowing and admiring the building’s rich history.
