Cambridge on the Cutting Edge: Innovators and Inventions
47 pages (softcover), ©1997, $2.00
Cambridge's modern-day distinction as a leader in technological innovation has its roots in a history of forward thinking. Cambridge on the Cutting Edge traces this story from the founding of Harvard College in 1636 to the development of Cambridge's flourishing high-tech community. Wit, humor, and painstaking detail make Cambridge's creative past -- from soap to Necco wafers to biopharmaceuticals -- come alive.
