People Who Changed the World

Presented by Peter White Public Library at Peter White Public Library

Without the innovations of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs, the exploration of space would not be possible.  Join Margaret Brumm on Wednesday, August 28 at 6:30 pm in the Shiras Room of the Peter White Public Library for the third in a series of talks on People Who Changed the World.


For this presentation, Margaret will talk about her favorite inventor, James Watt.  Watt, an 18th century musical instrument maker and inventor was a major contributor to the Industrial Revolution.  Known primarily for his innovations that improved the steam engine, Watt also worked on improving the copying process and cleaning chemical glassware.
