The introduction of the OMT Artifact dates to circa 1993. It was "a time when the concept of organizational identity was just taking off as a useful frame" and there was a "conscious effort to create an identity for the division." The very first OMT Artifact was an OMT pin that became known as the "Dutton Button."**
Inspired by this year's bandana artifact, we are hoping to assemble a timeline and photo archive of past OMT artifacts. To make this happen we need your tidbits and photos. So, dig through your desk drawers, comb through your closets, and rifle through your book shelves.
To get things started, we thank Ray Zammuto, OMT Division Chair from 1992-1992 and Jane Dutton, OMT Division Chair from 1994-1995, for sending us some photos. If you know the dates any of these artifacts were given out,
