Uncle Sam – The Inventor

Uncle Sam – The Inventor

Make Pt1099
I love this illustration from Popular Mechanics 1935. We don’t do politics here on MAKE, but we do celebrate American ingenuity (as well as international of course). In a week we’ll elect a new president, no matter what happens it’s up to us, the people, to “make” our future better in the USA. Never before has there been a worldwide need to scientists and engineers, if we’re going to make it – we’re going to need to celebrate smarts. Uncle Sam the inventor shouldn’t be a novelty from the 1930’s but a reminder of who we are and where we came from. Go Sam go, we can do it!
