Ryerson a Family Tradition

My father, the late David Koch graduated from Ryerson's Photography program in 1951.
He worked for Graphic Litho Plate until retiring in the 80's.
It should be noted that Graphic Litho Plate was part of the Norman Esch empire, and we now have the Esch family to thank for The Norman Esch Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship Awards.

My daughter graduated from the Ryerson's Theatre Program in 2013.
Her final year thesis project, a Delorean Transformer Costume has been a big hit at the British Car Day, the Saint Patrick's Day Parade, and several conventions.
