Smith to be featured speaker at Eli Whitney Museum

Smith’s topic will be A.C. Gilbert, who graduated 100 years ago and embodied the ideals of Yale in that epoch. Gilbert won a gold medal in the 1908 Olympics and built a world famous learning toy manufacturing company in New Haven. In 1991, the museum began collecting and adapting for contemporary children activities that were the core of the Gilbert Company’s catalog.
