IET Archives - Valentines Day - Fascinating Fact

Valentine's Day heartIn keeping with the romantic mood of this month, did you know that the IET Archive has love letters stashed away in its collections? Correspondence written between a member of the Institution of Electrical Engineers and his wife reveal that engineers do have a romantic side.


On the morning of their wedding day he wrote:

"I may not, because it is so decreed, see you until 12.30 today, so I write to you on this the morning of our day to send you, in advance, all my love, my thoughts, my everything."


True to his mathematical background, however, this engineer signed off all his letters to his wife with kisses to the power of infinity.
