Frank Who?

Tuesday, January 22 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

The next time you use an electric motor (e.g. to start your car), ride on a Metro North train or the light rail/trolley systems in Seattle, Portland, etc., or read about progress in driverless vehicles, give a thought to one of the most significant men behind all of these developments.  

In the last two decades of the 19th century, the science and technology of electricity were developing fast.  One of the pioneers was Frank Sprague, whose name is little known to the general public.  Come along to learn a little about his life, and much more about his contribution to the modern world.   

The presentation is by Tom Laurenson, of the Shore Line Trolley Museum in Connecticut. 

Prepare to be surprised.
