  • Carriage Wheels to Cadillacs at the American Precision Museum, Windsor, VT (1999).
    At the turn of the twentieth century, Vermonter Henry Leland brought his passion for precision manufacturing to the new industries of his age. He helped build sewing machines, he founded both Cadillac and Lincoln Motors, and he built aircraft engines for the experimental planes of the first World War.

  • Pedal Power at the American Precision Museum, Windsor, VT (1997).
    When a primitive pedal-powered vehicle, called a boneshaker, met up with the emerging tools of mass production, the modern bicycle was born. Then, just as surely as rotating pedals spin a bicycle wheel, new technology created social change, which demanded more technological change, which in turn brought more social change. At the peak of the cycling craze, in the 1890s, the bicycle drove remarkable advances in both manufacturing and society.

  • Consulted on  People, Places, Planes: Aviation, Folk Art & Community  for the Port Washington Public Library, Port Washington, NY (1997).

  • The Cutting Edge: Machines that Shape Our World  at the American Precision Museum, Windsor, VT (1996).

    The second industrial revolution arrived in the 1840s with the development of precision machine tools capable of making interchangeable parts. First developed for the mass production of rifles, precision tools were soon put to work creating consumer goods and a mass consumer culture.

  • Maxfield Parrish: Machinist, Artisan, Artist  at the American Precision Museum, Windsor, VT (1995).

    In a machine shop below his painting studio, Maxfield Parrish created props, tools, miniature sets, and lighting effects that informed his paintings. His fascination with technology, light, and color--and his masterful use of all three--made him one of the twentieth century's most popular artists.

  • Consulted on Flight of Memory: Long Island's Aeronautical Past for the Port Washington Public Library, Port Washington, NY (1995).

  • Edwin A. Link and the Air Age: Progress, Technology, and the Romance of Motion at The Roberson Museum and Science Center, Binghamton, NY (permanent exhibit opened 1992).

    Ed Link believed in the power of the airplane to create a better world, and for more than thirty years, he devoted his creative talents to making the Air Age happen. Within his story, there rests another story: each of us has an emotional relationship with the technology that surrounds us. This exhibition invites visitors to explore their own relationships with the romance of motion, the concept of progress, and the advances of technology.
