Divine Discontent - Charles Proteus Steinmetz - DVD Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $19.95
Charles Proteus Steinmetz was one of the best-known figures of the early 20th Century. His work made the generation and transmission of electricity safe and possible.

He was a Prussian-born American mathematician and electrical engineer and professor at Union College. He fostered the development of alternating current that made possible the expansion of the electric power industry in the United States, formulating mathematical theories for engineers. He made ground-breaking discoveries in the understanding of hysteresis that enabled engineers to design better electromagnetic apparatus equipment including especially electric motors for use in industry.

Steinmetz’s theories gave control to the electrical age through mathematics. These were the keys to unlock the mystery and power of a force that would change life around the globe.

While his formulas and computations were dense and complex, he reveled in life’s simple pleasures and cared deeply about the condition of his fellow man.

Steinmetz was an immigrant born with multiple disabilities, including hip displaysia, curvature of the spine and dwarfism. He was just over four feet tall and often wracked with pain. Yet he lived a robust, active life. He was not a recluse who confined himself to the lab, but was instead a warm congenial man whose charm transcended the superficial impression of his physical appearance. Steinmetz was a progressive thinker who championed the working man. He was a tiny man who changed our world in great ways. He was a man who never lost sight of the value of human dignity.

Also included are 3 historic General Electric promotional films (an additional 45 minutes!):
