Written by Kate Harner


Charles Morris.JPGWillimantic, CT -- Author and financial journalist Charles Morris will present a lecture titled "The First American Industrial Revolution" at Eastern Connecticut State University. The lecture will be held at 1 p.m. on Nov. 12 in the Student Center Theatre. Barbara Tucker, director of the Center for Connecticut Studies and history professor at Eastern, will host the event. The public is invited. Admission is free.

Morris says that this first American Revolution "was centered in the Connecticut River Valley in the first half of the 19th century. Its importance is much under-appreciated, but it was a key contributor to American industrial dominance in the next century."

Two of Morris's best-known articles are "The Coming Global Boom" in The Atlantic (October 1989) and "Tough Love for the American Economy" in BusinessWeek (August 2008). Some of his books include "The AARP: America's Most Powerful Lobby and the Coming Clash of Generations," "American Catholic: The Saints and Sinners Who Built America's Most Powerful Church" and "The Tycoons: How Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, Jay Gould, and J.P. Morgan Invented the American Supereconomy."

Morris has also been a guest on several radio and television programs, such as the NBC's "Today Show," CNN's "Money Line" and NPR's "All Things Considered."
