VIRTUAL TALK: “America the Ingenious” with Kevin Baker
July 23, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
AMERICA THE INGENIOUS
How a Nation of Dreamers, Immigrants, and Tinkerers Changed the World
The skyscraper and subway car. The telephone and telegraph. The safety elevator and the safety pin. All made in America. Not to mention the microprocessor, amusement park, MRI, supermarket, Pennsylvania rifle, or that magnificent Golden Gate Bridge. Without doubt, America is a nation of inventors, tinkerers, researchers, and adventurers. People like the Edisons, the Bells, and the Carnegies–plus less celebrated folks like Youphes and Loeb Strauss, two Jewish immigrants from Germany who turned our world blue–as in blue jeans. Or Philo Farnsworth, who upended communications forever with his little invention: television. Meet well-known and little-known dreamers who searched for–and found–the next big thing, making America great again..and again…and again.
