The big news this year is our guest speaker Andrew Baron. If you’ve seen the movie Hugo or Henri Maillardet’s Automaton at the Franklin Institute or the wonderful cutting edge pop-up creations of Popyrus Studios or the detailed research to be discovered at RCATheremin.com, then you have a partial knowledge of Andrew Baron and his work. Since childhood, he has repaired and restored everything from old clocks and wind-up phonographs to typewriters, cash registers, music boxes, vintage radios and even antique cars. The Library of Congress and the Edison Museum in Fort Myers, Florida have sought out his expertise. His latest work is a kinetic invention drawing set into the cover of a new best-selling book, The Art of Rube Goldberg.
A gifted artist and a compelling speaker, Andrew is a radio collector and one of us. We are looking forward to seeing his presentation as he shares his remarakable life with us. As a special bonus, he has promised to play a tune or two on the Pavek’s original 1929 Theremin – if I can get it over to the hotel.
