web rittenhouse protraitThis year’s topic for our Annual Luncheon presentation is: The Astronomical Achievements of David Rittenhouse. Born in 1732, David Rittenhouse came of age at a time when the entire world was turning its head towards science. Self-taught, Rittenhouse would become a craftsman, an astronomer, a surveyor, an instrument maker and a scientist. Alongside the likes of Benjamin Franklin, Rittenhouse would lead the early United States into the world of enlightenment. Rittenhouse served as President of the American Philosophical Society and as treasurer of Pennsylvania, and the first Director of the U.S. Mint. He observed the transit of Venus and helped to survey Pennsylvania’s borders. Join us on November 9, 2019 at the Bay Pony Inn in Lederach, PA for our Annual Luncheon and learn about the man whom Thomas Jefferson called an example of “New World genius.”
