Great stuff. Collection of hard-to-find journal articles on this obscure topic.

As an engineer, I enjoyed reading this book and learning about the history of engineering in America and how it came about. I think this is one of the topics that should be added to the engineering curriculum in college. We learn all of the equations that we need to solve problems, but we don't learn the history behind the people that created them.

I enjoy learning about the roots of the industry that I am a part of. Thank You!
