Franklin Exhibit Heralds Founder’s Varied Work

Chris Maddaloni/CQ Roll Call
A new National Archives exhibit highlighting Benjamin Franklin’s varied talents opens this week and showcases some of the Founding Father’s letters and rare papers.

Greg Martin, director of public policy and Washington communications for General Motors, had a slightly different perspective on the exhibits core purpose, one not too far removed from the theme of Franklin as grand contributor. 

Our goal through this exhibit [is to] get a glimpse into the mind of a person like Ben Franklin, we can inspire that next generation of scientists and engineers to design and build great cars, Martin said.
