Author Maury Klein Speaks at Ames Family Dinner

On May 11th, members of the Ames family gathered at Stonehill for their annual family dinner.  After touring the renovation of the Ames Shovel Works (located 2 miles from the College), which is being repurposed into residential apartments, the family listened to a lecture by retired URI professor Maury Klein.  Dr. Klein’s works on the Union Pacific railroad and General Electric includes many references to the Ames family’s involvement in these companies.
