George Westinghouse: A Genius for Invention

The story of a man who left an indelible mark on the world that rivaled that of his contemporary, Thomas Edison.  This determined, forward-thinking inventor and industrialist held more than 350 patents that changed the face of America.

"George Westinghouse had a genius for invention. The devices he created or sponsored made safe, high-speed train travel a reality, brought electricity and natural gas into American homes and businesses, harnessed the awesome power of Niagara Falls, and illuminated the World Columbian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago, a triumphant celebration of industry and technology."
