A Holocaust survivor whose early experiences shaped his ethos of invention, Gerber pioneered important developments in engineering, electronics, printing, apparel, aerospace, and numerous other areas, playing an essential role in the transformation of American industry. Gerber’s story is remarkable and inspiring, and his method, redolent of Edison’s and Sperry’s, holds a key to a restored national economy and American creative vitality in the twenty-first century.”
