Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse are considered two of the greatest inventor-entrepreneurs. They were also great self- promoters, a skill that has somewhat obscured the nature of their roles and rivalry.
George Wise is set to give the talk Edison, Westinghouse, & Schenectady, on Saturday, March 14th, at the Schenectady County Historical Society. This talk will aim try to clarify both Edison’s and Westinghouse’s contributions and conflict, with focus on how those two aspects came together in Schenectady in the eventful year 1886.
This event will begin at 2 pm. Schenectady County Historical Society is located at 32 Washington Avenue, Schenectady. Admission is $5 or free for SCHS members.
