About the Author

Alan Rothschild owns the largest privately-owned collection of publicly-viewable patent models, the Rothschild Petersen Patent Model Museum. Containing nearly 4,000 patent models and related documents, the collection spans America's Industrial Revolution. Alan Rothschild—an inventor himself—has constructed an impressive facility to display hundreds of the models, along with a workshop/laboratory where the remaining models are stored, studied and cared for.
