The Inventive Life of Charles Hill Morgan: The Power of Improvement in Industry, Education and Civic Life
by Allison Chisolm
When Charles Hill Morgan learned how to use specialized drafting tools in the 1840s, his professional-grade compass precisely centered measurements for foundations and steam engines. His mastery of these tools led to a future of vast new possibilities. The strength of his ideas and the success of his inventions took him on a path that led from Lancaster's Factory Village in central Massachusetts to the courts of Europe. In the span of 80 years, Charles would go from living hand to mouth in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts to taking tea at Windsor Castle with the Queen of England.
