    Where: Barnes Hiscock Mansion, 930 James St.
    Who: SU Alumni & Friends
    Cost: $15

    Join us for an exciting true story of theft of intellectual property and reputation at the dawn of talking pictures. The jump from silent film to “talkies” was only possible because of the inventions of Auburn’s Theodore Case. But there are twists and turns to his recognition for his revolutionary work, involving claims made by Lee DeForest. Toni Colella will present the tale of Case’s invention of sound-on-film and of his other inventions in the sound and communications field.

    RSVP: with the number of people in your party if you plan to attend.

    Breakfast will be ready at 8:00 a.m. and the presentation will begin at 8:30 a.m.  Pre-and post-talk gives plenty of time to meet your fellow alumni, connect, and network.

    Price for the event is $15 at the door and includes breakfast, event, and gratuities. There is ample free parking.
