Memoirs of Martin F. Tiernan

Martin Tiernan grew up in a house in upstate New York, with no electricity or plumbing in a large family of which many of his siblings died at a young age. He was the first in his family to go to college and later started a business that was a pioneer in developing clean water, among other things. In 1956 Martin wrote his memoirs which he published so he could share his family heritage with with his children. In 2010 his grandson, Michael Tiernan, wanted to remake the book so he could share the remarkable life of his grandfather with future generations. After all his grandfather did discover water purification. I was fortunate enough to have the privilege of undertaking this task. I scanned the images from the book and retyped the text. I am happy with the new design and thrilled to see it in print.
