News & Opinion: Tonight - They Made America

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 9:43 PM – Filed under: Innovation & Creativity

They Made America is a book and a four part PBS series by Harold Evans. The book/program is a series of profiles of American inventors and innovators. Tom Ehrenfeld pointed the book out to us a month as one we should watch. Speaking of watching, the PBS program premieres tonight at 9PM EDT. You can read an excerpt from the book here. We'll give you some more on it later in the week.
