DESCRIPTION

On Wednesday May 8th at 7pm at Lambert Castle (3 Valley Road, Paterson NJ), the Passaic County Historical Society is hosting Linda Barth as she presents New Jersey Originals: Technological Marvels, Odd Inventions, Trailblazing Characters, and More. Based on her book by the same title, in this program Linda will teach us about the inventions of Bell Labs and Edison, in addition to other valuable, brilliant, and quirky creations. The work of our soldiers at Fort Monmouth and Camp Evans—including radar and night vision goggles—helped the United States win World War II. Cook College at Rutgers has produced important, often disease-resistant, vegetables and flowers. Among the edible inventions are pork roll, M&M’s, and the famous Campbell’s green bean casserole. Quirky firsts include Lucy the Elephant and the Francis life car. And just for fun, some famous and not-so-famous New Jerseyans. The program is free and open to the public. Copies of Linda Barth's publication will be available for purchase.
