Researcher: Rachel Sahlman Artist: Dick Strandberg
Benjamin Franklin, born January 17, 1706, was the 10th son, and 15th child, of 17 children in the Josiah Franklin family. Josiah was a soap and candlemaker, who lived in Boston, Massachusetts with his second wife, Abiah Folger. Although Franklin learned to read at an early age, he only attended grammar school for two years. By the time he was 10 years old, Franklin was working for his father. However, he did not enjoy the candlemaking profession, and two years later, Franklin was apprenticed to his brother James, a printer.
For five years, Franklin sought to master the printers' trade. During this time, he also strove to improve his education. Franklin read numerous classics and perfected his writing style. One night, Franklin slipped a letter, signed "Silence Dogood," under the door of his brother's newspaper, the New England Courant. That letter and the next 13 written by Franklin were published anonymously. The essays were widely read and acclaimed for their satire.
After a quarrel with his brother in 1723, Franklin left Boston for Philadelphia, where he again worked in the printing industry. He established a friendship with the Pennsylvania governor, Sir William Keith, and at Keith's suggestion, Franklin decided to go into business for himself. Keith offered to arrange letters of credit and introduction for Franklin's trip to London to purchase equipment. Unfortunately, Keith proved unreliable, and Franklin arrived in London with no means. However, he quickly found employment in two of London's largest printing houses, and after two years, earned enough money to return to America.

FRANKLIN BENJAMIN .............. BIOGRAPHY ..............
Benjamin Franklin was quite active politically as well. In addition to serving on the colonial legislature from 1751-1764, he held the posts of deputy postmaster of Philadelphia (1737-53) and deputy postmaster general of the Colonies (1753-74). From 1757 to 1762 and from 1764 to 1775, Franklin lived in England, acting as an agent for Pennsylvania, Georgia, New Jersey and Massachusetts. It was during his second stay that he evolved from an English loyal into a Colonial patriot. The Stamp Act lead Franklin to defend the colonies in the House of Commons. When Franklin returned to Philadelphia in May of 1775, he became a member of the Continental Congress.
During the Congress he was part of the committee that helped draft the Declaration of Independence. Later, he served as president of the Pennsylvania Constitutional Convention, and traveled to Europe as a diplomat. Between 1776 and 1779 he worked in France, negotiating for an alliance and for treaties of commerce. With the aid of John Jay and John Adams, he negotiated the Treaty of Paris which brought the War for Independence to a close. From 1785 to 1787 Franklin was back in Pennsylvania where he was elected president of the Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania. He attended the Constitutional Convention in 1787, and while he was not in complete accord with various parts of the Constitution, he signed it all the same, and even served as a mediator of disputes that arose between different delegates.

MUSEO ELETTRICO - PERSONAGGI DELLA STORIA DELL'ENERGIA ELETTRICA Benjamin Franklin nacque a Boston nel 1706 e morì a Filadelfia nel 1790.
Scienziato letterato e politico statunitense discendente da famiglia calvinista immigrata dall'Oxfordshire, era destinato alla carriera ecclesiastica. Purtroppo a dodici anni dovette abbandonare gli studi per occuparsi come apprendista nella tipografia del proprio fratello James. Fra i libri che intanto leggeva amò le opere del Defoe, del Locke, del Pascal e di questi imitò gusto ed espressione di articoli che intanto andava pubblicando anonimi nella New England Courant , fondata da lui e dal fratello a Boston nel 1721. Allontanatosi dal fratello che lo maltrattava, si trasferì a Filadelfia, donde, per incarico del governatore della Pennsylvania, si recò a Londra per perfezionarsi nell'arte tipografica. Qui scrisse A Dissertation on Liberty and Necessity . Rientrato dopo due anni a Filadelfia, divenne tipografo ufficiale della provincia: fondò allora la The Pennsylvania Gazette trasformatasi poi nella Saturday Evening Post ; in cui enunciò un suo credo etico campato su tredici punti a sostegno di norme di vita pratica contrastanti con l'ortodossia puritana. Nel 1733 iniziò la pubblicazione di

—Benjamin Franklin Benjamin Franklin was a renaissance man if ever there was one. He was a printer, author, philanthropist, inventor, statesman, diplomat, and scientist. He was also a Member of Congress - the Continental Congress, which laid the groundwork for American independence.

Franklin, next to George Washington possibly the most famous 18th-century American, by 1757 had made a small fortune, established the Poor Richard of his almanacs (written under his pseudonym) as an oracle on how to get ahead in the world, and become widely known in European scientific circles for his reports of electrical experiments and theories. What is more, he was then just at the beginning of a long career as a politician, in the course of which he would be chief spokesman for the British colonies in their debates with the king's ministers about self- government and would have a hand in the writing of the Declaration of Independence, the securing of financial and military aid from France during the American Revolution, the negotiation of the treaty by which Great Britain recognized its former 13 colonies as a sovereign nation, and the framing of the Constitution, which for more than two centuries has been the fundamental law of the United States of America. And as impressive as Franklin's public service was, it was perhaps less remarkable than his contributions to the comfort and safety of daily life. He invented a stove, still being manufactured, to give more warmth than open fireplaces; the
