The Industrial Revolution: Then and Now
Doors Open at 9am; Presentation begins at 9:30am
Daniel Clark, PhD., Associate Professor of History, Oakland University
Originally from Midland, Michigan, Daniel Clark received his PhD from Duke University. Professor Clark’s main area of expertise is U.S. Labor History. Combining oral history and internal company documents, his book, Like Night and Day: Unionization in a Southern Mill Town (University of North Carolina Press, 1997), explored what unionization meant to workers and managers at cotton mills in a North Carolina community during the 1940s and 1950s. His current research focuses on autoworkers in the metropolitan Detroit region during the 1950s. Oral history interviews that form the backbone of this project will soon be available at the Walter P. Reuther Library at Wayne State University in Detroit. Prof. Clark regularly teaches courses on U.S. Labor and Cold War America as well as undergraduate and graduate research seminars. He also teaches courses about Detroit labor history and oral history methodology.
Marc Greuther. Chief Curator, Curator of Industrial Design, The Henry Ford
Chief Curator Marc Greuther has a B.A. from the Courtauld Institute of Art at the University of London, and over twenty years of experience with industrial technology at The Henry Ford. His seven years as a member of the institution’s Historic Operating Machinery unit involved him in the operation and troubleshooting of a wide range of artifacts, from 19th century machine tools and steam engines to late 20th century robots and production equipment. His writings for the Society for the History of Technology’s journal Technology and Culture usually spring from or explore areas where art history and the history of technology overlap.
