Walter Wilson: Portrait of an Inventor

A. Gordon Wilson

 

Walter Wilson (1874-1957) lived in that golden age before specialisation, when an inventive engineer could make a significant contribution to anything he touched.

This book tells the story of Wilson’s exciting but often tempestuous and misunderstood career; his successes and failures; the many innovations which have not bee bettered to this day.

There is much to be learned from this story, firmly but sympathetically told by Walter Wilson’s eldest son; it is essential reading for everyone interested in the history of our times.
