Vanguards of Connecticut History
Friday October 26, 1:00 PM
Noble Horizons, 17 Cobble Road, Salisbury
Eric D. Lehman will discuss his new book, "Connecticut Vanguards: Historic Trailblazers and their Legacies.”
Professor Lehman is a historian of CT and his book chronicles the lives of two dozen men and women whose inventive spirit and drive left their marks on CT and the world as a whole. Some of the state's natives, like Eli Whitney and Charles Goodyear, pioneered inventions that resonate today; others like Helen Keller championed the rights of the underprivileged while Frederick Law Olmsted, Audrey Hepburn and P.T. Barnum changed our perception of the world.
