Tuxedo Park

By

Conant’s first book is a vividly written biography of Alfred Loomis, Wall Street mogul in the 1920s and brilliant amateur physicist after 1929. In his state-of-the-art laboratory at the Tuxedo Park, NY estate, Loomis acted as catalyst for development of radar systems that helped defeat the German Air Force and U-boats during World War II. The book provides a portrait of a fascinating man who had a huge, but little-known, impact on the outcome of the war and the technology that drives our lives today.
