Have you ever wanted to discuss an article you read in the Bulletin with its author? Now is your chance! Join us for our first NAWCC Meet the Author webinar with author Gregory Gorton to discuss his recent article in the May/June 2013 Bulletin on Seth Thomas Clock Company's Grand Office Calendar Clock. Greg Gorton joined the NAWCC in 2009 when he became interested in 19th century American clocks. His particular interest in double dial calendar clocks started when he visited the NAWCC Museum in Columbia, PA and saw the Seth Thomas Office Calendar No. 11 on display. He continues to collect double dial calendar clocks and study the history of the men and companies that manufactured them. Seth Thomas Clock Company’s Grand Office Calendar is his first article for the Bulletin.
Greg is a retired US Naval Officer and presently works as an advisory engineer for IBM. He lives in Greensboro, NC with his wife Cathy and their two sons Mark and Matt.
During this webinar hear where Greg's research lead him and have the opportunity to ask him questions about his article. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
