Title
1968 Miniature Souvenir RIT Brick
Subject

Small souvenir brick in a box handed out to tours during their visit to RIT

Description

Numerous miniature bricks like this one were handed out to tours and students to celebrate the new Henrietta campus that RIT moved to in 1968. The brick itself was made of the same patented mixture that all other bricks at RIT are made of, making it an identical miniature of the 7.5 million bricks that were used to create the new campus. The packaging containing the brick featured the new RIT logo, making it one of the earlier souvenirs to display the newer logo as well as the new colors adopted by the school.
