Lewis Latimer, Engineering Wizard


One day in 1884, Lewis wrote in his diary: "The Edison people sent for me!" More than once in his life, great inventors like Edison and Alexander Graham Bell had noticed his work and hired him. Engineer, inventor, artist and poet--Latimer was a man of many talents.


"This chapter book biography provides a compelling insight in to the life of inventor Lewis Latimer and his scientific contributions. A recommended purchase for most school and public libraries."  Elizabeth Nicolai, Anchorage Public Library, AK. (School Library Journal.)
