For our first film we’ll watch Empire of the Air: The Men who Made Radio. Please register here and you will receive a zoom link to the meeting the week of the program.

From Ken Burns, comes the story of radio's creation of radio and three men of genius, vision, and determination: Lee De Forest, a clergyman's flamboyant son; Edwin Howard Armstrong, a brilliant, withdrawn inventor; and David Sarnoff, a hard-driving Russian immigrant who created the world's most powerful communications company. This film evokes the lives of three men whose work profoundly transformed modern America.  Utilize our digital film library Hoopla (available through our website under e-resources) or call the library to get a DVD copy of this film.
