We all know Ben Franklin discovered lightning is electricity. But, his contributions to many branches of science were so extensive that he was probably the most famous scientist of his time. Of course, his inventions were also important for many of seniors even today with our bifocals and their modern enhancements. But, he was also an innovator, introducing to our country many institutions that were more common in Europe, including a university, postal system, library, fire department and fire insurance. The course will be in part based on lectures by Professor Robert Allison in The Great Courses: The Age of Benjamin Franklin.
