Lecture: Dr. Patrick McCray

    • “Wiring the Work of Art: Engineers and Artists in the Age of Apollo”

      W. Patrick McCray is a professor in the Department of History at the University of California, Santa Barbara. McCray’s most recent book (2013) is "The Visioneers: How an Elite Group of Scientists Pursued Space Colonies, Nanotechnologies, and a Limitless Future, which won the Watson and Helen Miles Davis Prize from the History of Science Society" and is referred to as the “best book written for a general audience.” Besides authoring three other books about the history of science and technology, he also recently co-edited a collection of essays called "Groovy Science: Knowledge, Innovation, and the American Counterculture" which the University of Chicago published in 2016. A reception will follow the lecture in the the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art.
