Slack's book still available. Charles
Slack, author of a new biography of Charles Goodyear, joined
us on December 8th to talk about his research of Charles Goodyear
that went into his writing the book. Signed
copies of his book are available at the Museum store for $25! Limited
is "A Noble Obsession: Charles Goodyear, Thomas Hancock
and the race to unlock the Greatest Industrial Secret of the
Nineteenth Century." When Charles Slack appeared
on C-SPAN's program "Booknotes"
with Brian Lamb, he was asked how he became interested in
the life of Charles Goodyear. He replied that while reading
a book his parents gave him many years earlier, "Webster's
American Biographies," he became fascinated with stories
of debtor's prisons, a starving inventor and the competition
with Thomas Hancock. This fascination led to further research
in Akron, Ohio, Woburn, Mass. and of course Naugatuck, CT.
To learn more about this book and the author join us on Sunday
afternoon, December 8th.
