Abstract:
A biography of Thaddeus Hyatt. Thaddeus Hyatt was born in New Jersey in 1816. The son of a schoolmaster, he was educated as a lawyer but did not practice, spending most of his life in New York City and London. Early in his career (about 1840-50) he invented and manufactured what he called an "illuminated sidewalk grating" made of iron, concrete, and glass. . .
