253008 * The World of Benjamin Franklin

This background on that kite-flying fool Ben comes from the Franklin Institute of Science. This is a hypertext narrative about America's revolutionary renaissance man, with links to pages on his work as an inventor, printer, statesman, philosopher, musician and economist. The site is up to its knee-britches in information, from the Quicktime movie "Glimpses of the Man" to an assortment of JPEG images of Ben's inventions, illustrations and publications. The Franklin Institute's educational mission shines through, making this a great site to introduce kids to Franklin's impact on our culture, from his invention of the bifocal to his publication of Poor Richard's Almanack.
