New Book by Terri Fergason Neal '79

Posted By Randy Neal, Thursday, December 29, 2016
Terri completed an unfinished autobiography of her father, James Fergason - the inventor of the first practical Liquid Crystal Display.  His life long research of liquid crystals earned him induction into the Inventor's Hall of Fame in Akron and the Lemelson MIT award - the highest prize for inventors.  The original manuscript was a collaboration with Arthur Berman.  Art is a former Hiram College Physics professor and then a liquid crystal researcher and scientist who worked closely with Mr. Fergason in later years.  The book is called "Mr. Liquid Crystal" and is available via Amazon.
