Abstract:A biography of Arthur Newell Talbot. Arthur Newell Talbot was born in Cortland, Ill., in 1857. According to one description he arrived at the campus of the Univsersity of Illinois in 1877 (interestingly enough the same year that Hyatt published his work and that Ward "invented iron with beton") on a horse-drawn streetcar, the only public transportation connecting the University and the neighboring towns of Champaign and Urbana. Except for a 4-year period, he would spend the remainder of his life there. After graduating in 1881, he followed his boyhood interest in railroading, working in Colorado. In 1885 Talbot returned to his alma mater as an assistant professor of engineering and mathematics. . .
