About the Author

James E. McClellan III is professor of the history of science and Harold Dorn is professor emeritus of the history of science and technology at the Stevens Institute of Technology.

Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d'histoire Inclusive and straightforward. Technology and Culture
