The Artisan Origins of The Most Innovative Founding Father
With Professor Rob Martello, PhD, Olin College of Engineering
Waterstone at Wellesley | River Room
The son of an artisan candlemaker, Ben Franklin grew to define polymath extraordinaire – but he was first a printer, and he proudly self-identified as such his entire life.
Join us to learn about young Franklin’s familial influences and how the power of his press helped shift America’s craft-centered paradigm toward a proto-industrial era.
