Ithaca History

SURROUNDED BY REALITY: 100 THI

SURROUNDED BY REALITY: 100 THI

$10.95
More Info
There is a popular bumper sticker in this Upstate New York town that reads, Ithaca: 10 Square Miles Surrounded by Reality. The sentiment surely has something to do with the compelling history, eccentric characters, and quirky charm of this intellectually advantaged, culturally progressive, geographically isolated place. After you've browsed through this updated edition of a local classic, you will better understand the bumper sticker's message - Ithaca is almost too good to be true. Fascinating tidbits and trivia in purposely random sequence (with generous cross-references) create a ready-to-explore trail of knowledge about Ithaca and its environs, informing and entertaining, correcting myths and misconceptions, mostly revealing an unexpected treasure trove that brings a culture and a place into sharp focus.

In September 2019, only one of Forbes' one hundred innovative leaders was a woman ("America's Most Innovative Leaders"). Throughout history, women have been breaking boundaries in technology, but recognition has been few and far between. Lack of recognition has left young girls and aspiring women without role models, thus contributing to the gender gap in technical fields. With this book, we hope to increase visibility of female innovators. Wall of Wonder celebrates Cornell University alumnae who have made significant impacts on society through science, technology, and engineering. In addition to showcasing the breadth of opportunities a technical education can offer, these women share stories of resilience, leadership, and ardor for all ages.
