August Speaker - Prof. Courtney Willis

Professor Willis was a wonderful speaker, giving us a very interesting history of the development of featherweight machines since 1933.  Collecting these machines has been his hobby since retiring .. he taught chemistry and physics at the high school level for 25 years before moving on to teaching physics and astronomy at the university level for another 25 years!  He brought about a dozen machines to show us, but when asked how many he has, it seems there are 150 in his basement!
