Wisconsin Innovations Exhibit and Thomas Fifield
In early 2011 DESCO was approached by staff from the Wisconsin Historical Society for information and artifacts for part of a new exhibit they were working on. The exhibit entitled Wisconsin Innovations was to showcase the Wisconsin people and inventions that have contributed to society. Mr. Fifield was chosen to be part of the exhibit because of his development of the Air Hat. Mr. Fifield passed away on February 9, 2007 at age 91. We made prototype #1 and a polished Air Hat available, plus some photos. Here are some shots of the Fifield display in the exhibit:
The Wisconsin Innovations exhibit runs Sep 17, 2011 - Dec 31, 2012 9 am–4 pm, Tuesday through Saturday.
