Benjamin Franklin’s 300th Birthday

January 18th, 2006 by Michael Moncur in Biography

Benjamin Franklin

Only one of the people we list quotations from has the distinction of being a scientist, writer, inventor, newspaper editor, college founder, and one of the founding fathers of the United States.

Yesterday was the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin’s birth, and a museum exhibit is celebrating this with information about his life. There’s also an online exhibit. Wikipedia also has a good biography of Franklin, or you can read his autobiography.
