History FIRST Robotics College speech

So, I've opted to do a 5-minute presentation in my public speaking class on the history of FIRST robotics, now I know that first inspires is a great website for the history of FIRST. However, I'm looking for other options to source history of FIRST and how it was founded. If any team has a great historical part of there website or anyone knows of a source of pictures that would be awesome.

Thanks in advance.

There used to be a FRIST wiki site, but I don't know if it is still active.

Thanks, that's great! and I figured a wiki wouldn't be too helpful but I'll look.

Re: History FIRST Robotics College speech

I suggest 20's website if you're looking for ancient history. Paul Kane is still involved; you could probably contact him via the TVR RPC or through 20 if you needed an interview with someone who mentored in 1992.

Don't forget that CD has stuff from 2001ish onwards - some of the old papers, threads, etc. are very enlightening. One of my personal favorites is Andy's first post.

At the risk of tootin' my own horn, I think you'll find this post--and the link inside it--to be helpful.

Re: History FIRST Robotics College speech

Tooting my own horn a tiny bit. The first 1/3 of the AndyMarkup presentation tries to hit the high points of changes in FRC over the years as well if that's something you're interested in.

http://andymarkup.com/FRC%20At%2050.pdf

Tried to grab pictures of robots of that time period, but most of them were sourced from 45's history project (linked in this thread already)
