<p>James Alleman was a professor of civil engineering at Purdue from 1989 to 2005 who collected slide rules and books for this collection.<span>&nbsp; </span>Alleman began collecting slide rules from alumni around 1987 out of personal interest and for a display to coincide with civil engineering&rsquo;s centennial celebration in 1987.<span>&nbsp; </span>According to Alleman, &ldquo;There was a point in time when the slide rule was king.<span>&nbsp; </span>During a period of about 400 years, anything anybody built that was of any magnitude would have required a slide rule&rdquo; (Venere, 2004).</p>

<p>Alleman is currently a Professor at Iowa State University in the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering.<span>&nbsp; </span>He received his B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Notre Dame in 1971.<span>&nbsp; </span>In 1972, he received his M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Notre Dame in 1972 and he received his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Notre Dame in 1978.<span>&nbsp; </span>In 2006 he was a Fulbright Scholar at the Technical University of Crete, Xania, Greece.</p>
