History Lecture:

Somerset Tech:
Stories of Personalities and Technologies From Somerset County

Sunday, February 25, 2017
2:00 pm in the Farmhouse
Featuring Jim DelGiudice

As far back as the days of Lord Stirling and his astronomical observations, Somerset County, NJ has seen technological innovation. Frank Lloyd Wright built homes here; Gerald Pearson, inventor of the solar panel, made his home right at the Kennedy Martin Stelle Farmstead; and American Cyanamid, the country’s first diversified chemical corporation, had a huge presence in Bound Brook and Bridgewater. In this lecture Jim DelGiudice will examine some of the little-known history and personalities which have made Somerset such a unique county.

Jim DelGiudice has used his eyes and voice to document the New Jersey scene for more than half his 58 years. His architectural photography for books published by Rutgers University Press and his lectures at Drew University have won him a share of the state’s Historic Preservation Award three times. In the millennium year Jim was cited by both the state and county legislatures for his lifetime contribution to the arts. Most recently, he served as photo editor for A Lifetime with Shakespeare, published by McFarland & Company. An adjunct assistant professor at County College of Morris as well as an adjunct at Columbia University, Jim enjoys presenting talks to adult and professional groups around the metropolitan area.
