History Spotlight
THE BRIDGE Magazine
of IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu:
Part II
By Steve E. Watkins, Gamma Theta Chapter
THE BRIDGE magazine was named for the emblem
of IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) - the Wheatstone
bridge. Just as this emblem reflects the three ideals
for member eligibility, the magazine promotes HKN
and its Scholarship, Character, and Attitude values.
The content includes an archival record of the global
association, highlights of Chapter activities, recognition
of technical achievements, historical notes for the
profession, and other content of interest to student
and professional members.
THE BRIDGE on the IEEE App
As a publication of IEEE
since 2010, THE BRIDGE
has an open-access
electronic distribution.
The current issue and an
archive of these electronic
issues are available on the
IEEE-HKN website. Anyone
interested in receiving notice
of just-published issues can
make an e-mail request to
info@hkn.org. THE BRIDGE
recently was added to the IEEE app for even easier
access via mobile devices.
As the official publication of IEEE-HKN, the magazine
was and is a primary means of informing both student
and alumni members about activities of the Society.
Board elections, new Chapters, award presentations,
and conferences are examples. It also serves to note
significant Chapter activities. Alton B. Zerby, Executive
Secretary 1934-1958, considered the magazine
" a vehicle of communication between students
and alumni. "
Chapter submissions were an essential part of the
magazine content. The HKN Constitution from
1958 required officer teams to include a Bridge
Correspondent and identified these Chapter officers as
supporting staff to the publication's editor. The duties
for Bridge Correspondent were to " submit reports of
the Chapter's activities to THE BRIDGE and perform
THE BRIDGE Covers for the Millenium (2000) and Centennial (2004) Issues
Covers for key historical issues are shown above.
The Millennium issue (Vol. 96, No. 3. 2000) reprints
selected content of THE BRIDGE from 1909 to
1995. The Centennial issue (Volume 100, No. 1,
2004) along with the Diamond Jubilee issue (Volume
75, No. 2, 1980) preserve a wealth of historical
information and photographs for the Society. Lists of
HKN leaders, Eminent Members, and award winners
are included. Scans of these print issues are available
at the archive on the Engineering and Technology
History Wiki page https://ethw.org/Eta_Kappa_Nu.
THE BRIDGE accepted advertising starting in 1917 as
a connection to industry. Companies such as General
Electric, Westinghouse, NRC, and Hughes Aircraft
were frequent sponsors. Educational connections
have become important recently, with universities
promoting their graduate programs. These university
sponsors are also shown on the IEEE-HKN website.
A major portion of recent issues have included original
feature articles and a few reprinted articles from IEEE
publications. These features are intended to give
readers insight into technical and professional subjects
of interest. Each issue has a theme, and several issues
were organized by guest editors. The issue themes
and an index of feature articles that have appeared
in THE BRIDGE for 2013 to 2020 are listed below.
Reprint articles are noted.
