A new National Archives exhibit highlighting Benjamin Franklins varied talents opens this week and showcases some of the Founding Fathers letters and rare papers.
Greg Martin, director of public policy and Washington communications for General Motors, had a slightly different perspective on the exhibit’s 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.
