Four Amazing Geniuses from Little Silver

Monmouth County has been home to many brilliant people: award-winning authors, titans of industry, leading scientists, and modern inventors. Bell Labs and Fort Monmouth employed some of America’s most talented people in a host of research fields, resulting in world-changing innovations and paradigm-shifting technological advancements. John R. Barrows, editor of, the illustrated history of Monmouth County, will take a look at four overlooked yet amazing geniuses who all called the tiny town of Little Silver Home: The father of radio astronomy; the inventor of the silicon solar cell; the foremost breeder of hybrid plants in the history of American horticulture; and a woman who broke stereotypes while winning awards and dozens of patents related to military photography.
