"Mechanic To Millionaire: The Peter Cooper Story"
(Janet Gardner, 2010, 57 min.)
This is the rags-to-riches story of Peter Cooper, a remarkable inventor, industrialist and philanthropist during the 19th Century who used his wealth and influence to foster social justice. Peter Cooper's name may not carry the same cache and instant recognition as Andrew Carnegie or John D. Rockefeller, but his contributions to American society are arguably just as, if not more, important. Peter Cooper built the first American steam locomotive and was instrumental in laying the first trans-Atlantic cable. Every day millions of children enjoy one of Cooper's first innovations, an instant gelatin, now known as "Jell-o". This is his story.

AFTER THE SCREENING: Q&A with dir. Janet Gardner
