Since the seventeenth century, Boston has been one of the world's foremost sources of world-changing innovation. Boston built the country's first public school and university, saw the invention of the clipper ship and telephone, and is home to medical and biotech breakthroughs that have saved the lives of thousands. Boston-area inventors have contributed hundreds of significant social, scientific, and commercial innovations. Boston Made tells the stories of 50 of these ground-breaking inventions. Each story can stand alone--but taken together, they provide an understanding of why Boston's history of innovation is not an accident- the city boasts a perfect storm of "innovation drivers," including strong entrepreneurship, funding, and networking. Across four waves of boom and decline, Boston has maintained an uncanny ability to innovate. These 50 stories, each one engagingly illustrated, present Boston creations that have entertained, helped, and healed people around the world.

Author Biography

Robert Krim is the founder and leader of the Boston History and Innovation Collaborative, for which he assembled a multi-university research team who worked with hundreds of organizations and businesses studying nearly five hundred innovations that changed the world and were developed in Greater Boston.

He has a BA from Harvard and earned a master's in US History, a master's in Economics, and a joint PhD/MBA from Boston College. A professor at Framingham State University, Krim founded the Entrepreneur Innovation Center. Alan R. Earls is a Boston-area writer who has covered high-tech innovation for more than thirty years. He has authored or edited more than a dozen books on innovative enterprises such as Polaroid, Digital Equipment Corporation, and Raytheon, as well as regional histories.
