Edward Ball, Yale professor and author of The Inventor and The Tycoon: A Gilded Age Murder and the Birth of Moving Pictures, takes us back 130 years to the intriguing story of Eadweard Muybridge who invented stop-motion photography, making motion pictures possible. But he was also a murderer who killed coolly and meticulously, and his trial was a media sensation. His patron was railroad tycoon (and former California governor) Leland Stanford. Between them, the murderer and the mogul launched the age of visual media. Book signing and reception after the presentation. Registration requested
