Mid-July is a good time to pay my annual homage to Saint Willis Carrier. He's not a Catholic saint, nor an Anglican saint, nor a saint in any of those faiths that I know of which are in the business of canonizing folks. But I'll bet they all revere him, and he's most certainly a Southern saint.

If you, too, appreciate Carrier's invention, not to mention his entrepreneurial traits of knowledge, skill, grit, determination, inventiveness, connection, and being in the right place at the right time, you may enjoy Eric Schultz' article about him, excerpted from his book, Innovation on Tap: Stories of Entrepreneurship from The Cotton Gin to Broadway's "Hamilton."

I am embarrassed to admit that I ggofled him to see what he invented. Duh!

Thank you, Janet, for your comment. It didn't appear immediately because I had to say it wasn't spam, since it was your first comment.

For my regular readers, this is Janet/Choir, not Janet/Family@mdash;though she may be a distant cousin of some sort. :)
