Overview
Notes & Quotes Ben Franklin Edition A Little Book of Quotes with a Place for Notes Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) He was one of America's most influential Founding Fathers of the United States. A renowned polymath, a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, Freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. He earned the title of "The First American" for his early campaigning for colonial unity. For some Franklin was one of the most accomplished American of his time and the most influential in creating the type of society America would become over the years because he was foundational in defining the American ethos as a blend of the practical values of thrift, hard work, education, community spirit, self-governing institutions. He opposed authoritarianism in both politics and religion. He was a significant figure for his discoveries about electricity and creating the lightning rod, bifocals, swim fins, the Franklin stove, and many other useful inventions. Franklin became a successful newspaper editor and printer in Philadelphia. He helped published the Pennsylvania Chronicle, a newspaper known for its criticisms of British policies. He also published The Poor Richard's Almanac and with help The Pennsylvania Gazette. He was elected, the first president of the American Philosophical Society and for many years was the British postmaster for the colonies. At one time served as governor of Pennsylvania. Toward the end of his life, he freed his slaves and became one of the most prominent abolitionists. Because of his colorful life, legacy, and status as one of America's most influential Founding Fathers, we have seen Franklin honored on coinage, the $100 bill, various building, schools and in numerous other ways."
