The story of Peter Cooper (1791-1883), who invented the washing machine, built the first steam locomotive and created edible gelatin. The profile relies on Cooper's own words, insights from historians and re-creations. Among his other accomplishments: founding the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in 1859; and transforming a bankrupt high school into a women's teachers college.
