I was born in the small town in West Virginia. My Father was an Electrical Engineer, my mother, a teacher. By the time I was 12 years old I was spending lots of time doing scientific experiments in my room in our home. From 1945-1948 I attended the Carnegie Institute, ater called Carnegie-Mellon University. I then went to work at MIT.

Who am I?

A man I would like to travel to Princeton to meet (although I understand he is quite shy and reserved), John Nash.

here goes:

Some people say I was born in 1757, but I was actually born in 1755 on a small island. My parents were not married and my father left our family in 1765. I was sent away to school by our local church. I attended what would later be known as Columbia University.

I served in the Revolutionary War and rode next to some VERY famous and influential people. This fact led me to a life in politics and helping to build this great nation.

Hint time:

In 1777 I was selected as one of General George Washington's personal aids. I was later elected to the First Continental Congress and was one of the driving forces behind ratification of the US Constitution. I was the First Secretary of the Treasury and also sucessfully defended the first case in front of the Supreme Court on the constitionality of a law in reference to a tax law on carriages.
