In 1901, Knoxvillian Weston Fulton patented an invention, the metal bellows, whose impact would reach from the home and industry to “the bottom of the ocean to the surface of the moon and from hospital rooms to the top of skyscrapers.”  Learn more about Fulton’s fascinating story, his business ventures that included Fulton Company, and his foray into the political life of Knoxville. Dewaine Speaks is a former salesman of the Fulton Company and the author of the book, Weston Fulton Changed the World.  This lecture is held in conjunction with the upcoming Made in Tennessee:  Manufacturing Milestones exhibition at the Museum of East Tennessee History.

The program is sponsored by 21st Mortgage Corporation and is free and open to the public.  The lecture will begin at noon at the East Tennessee History Center, 601 S. Gay Street, Knoxville.  Guests are invited to bring a “Brown Bag” lunch and enjoy the lecture.  Soft drinks will be available for purchase.  For more information on the lecture, exhibitions, or museum hours, call 865-215-8824.
