Modern Danbury History

One of the great gaps in the history of Danbury has been remedied thanks to the efforts of Bill Devlin & Herb Janick. They are the authors of the new volume entitled Danbury’s Third Century: From Urban Status to Tri-Centennial. This volume has been needed for a long time and covers many important themes about Danbury. One of the most important is the foresight of Frank Lee, one of the largest hat manufacturers, who was instrumental in founding the Danbury Industrial Corporation which led the transition from hatting as the leading Danbury industry to becoming a haven for high-tech industry.
