400 Years of Innovation in 45 Minutes- Annual Meeting of the Brookline Historical Society

Speakers Scott Kirsner and Rober Krim, co-founders of the Innovation Trail in Boston and Cambridge, will describe the ways that Boston, from the 1600s forward, created an ideal petri dish for inventors and innovators, influencing Thomas Edison and leading to innovations including surgical anesthesia, the telephone, Technicolor movies, and more.

At 3:15, at the conclusion of the presentation, attendees are invited to join Brookline Historical Society president Ken Liss for a one-hour walking tour and discussion of innovations born in Brookline.
