George Washington's Teeth

Dear Reader,

Technology has been a part of the leadership of the United States from the beginning.   Who can forget the stories of George Washington’s Wooden Teeth (actually carved ivory)?

However, did anyone know that President Lincoln was considered the technology leader of his day?    He was the first President to use a telegraph machine.

The first President to broadcast a speech on the radio was good old Woodrow Wilson… and the Emmy goes to Truman for being the first President on television.
