July 2017 Technical Society Program

Weston Fulton changed the world

The Technical Society of Knoxville program will have a presentation by Dewaine Speaks entitled “Weston Fulton changed the world” on Monday, July 10. Dewaine Speaks is a former salesman of the Fulton Company and the author of the book, “Weston Fulton Changed the World“.

Among many other things Weston Fulton was one of the founding members of the Technical Society of Knoxville and – even though Fulton High School is named for him- he is probably vastly underappreciated and unknown in Knoxville where he spent most of his professional career. His company, after many changes, endures as Fulton Bellows in Knoxville.

He was an outstanding person who was in our midst- a rare genius who literally changed the world- and this is an opportunity to learn about Weston Fulton from the author of a Fulton biography.
