Denis McCormack, of Cannonball House, St. Michaels, Md., will erect a building of 3,500 square feet on the outskirts of the town to house his collection of models and of steam and gas engines.
McCormack, who has written a number of articles for our magazines, will also provide facilities for continuing his restoration work on mechanical antiquities. He will make the building available as a cultural and study center in the history of technology.
The facilities will include a library of technical and early books, pictures and drawings and related materials. 'These,' he told this magazine, 'will cover the great invention and development of steam and internal combustion power which lifted such a burden of labor from man and beast and made possible the fantastic development of industry and the vast raising of the standards of living for the whole world,' in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
