History Lessons

“To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk” – Thomas A. Edison.

To supplement his U.S. History chapter on various inventions, Lynn Caseman, adjunct faculty member, brought his “iPod” in to show students in his class last February.

Caseman’s “iPod” is actually a 1911 phonograph that was given to his wife by her great-grandfather when she was a young girl.  The spring-powered phonograph’s box was handcrafted and the phonograph has never been restored or worked on.

Lynn Caseman’s U.S. History course coves the years from the end of the Civil War in 1865 to the impeachment of Bill Clinton in 1998.  Caseman has taught various courses at many area colleges and universities, including, but not limited to, courses such as Reading and Writing at WVUP, Extended Learning courses at WVU, and education courses at West Liberty University.

“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves” – Thomas A. Edison
