Portrayed by Larry Bounds
Living in the Age of Enlightenment, Ben Franklin was many things: a printer, a postmaster, an ambassador, an author, a scientist, a founding father. Above all, he was an inventor, creating solutions to common problems, innovating new technology, new governments and even making life a little more musical. Franklin upheld science and intellect and reason – scandalous man!
The Transylvania Reinventing American Series includes Benjamin Franklin, Hedy Lamarr, Thomas Edison, and Nikola Tesla.
