The United States has been characterized as “the Great Melting Pot.” In a melting pot the identity of individual ingredients is lost in the new product that is created. In this same way, the contributions of Poles and Polish-Americans to the development of the country have often vanished. This presentation will highlight people of Polish ancestry who made contributions to American culture, or those who invented well-known products, whose Polish ancestry is often unknown or overlooked.
Presenter James S. Pula is a Professor of History at Purdue University. He has authored more than a dozen books and is the editor of the Polish American Encyclopedia and the former editor of the academic journal Polish American Studies.
