Facts #2 - Mascot: The Beaver

"Of all the animals of the world, the beaver is noted for his
engineering and mechanical skill and habits of industry.
His habits are nocturnal, he does his best work in the dark."
By Mr. Hornaday

TIM, MIT's Mascot.
In 1914  a group of alumni presented the beaver to MIT's President, Richard Maclaurin, they choose  the beaver because he was (and is) an American animal and he is a nature engineer.
The mascot appears in the brass rat (I'll talk about it in a future post), and It's called TIM and normally appears at important events.
