Frederick Douglass Daguerreotype

My father-in-law sent us a video about one of his long-ongoing research projects, the study of an early Daguerreotype of Frederick Douglass.1 For a nerd with any sort of science leaning, this is a pretty interesting topic. Every time we visit my wife's home, he has some new story about this project with twists, turns, "plot thickens" moments, etc. It's great to see the attention start to ramp up a bit!

I'm really quite proud to be related to this guy. He does some pretty cool work in the nano scale up at the UofR.

  1. In the video, he’s the guy doing all of the work on the microscope, pointing out findings, etc.
