The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, a world-leading cancer research and treatment facility, is one of Charles F. Kettering's many legacies, a fitting testament for a man who was always seeking solutions to great problems. A philosopher, engineer, master salesman, scientist and genius inventor, Kettering gave us many things: electric automobile starters, electric headlights, Freon, automatic transmissions, incubators for premature babies, premium gasoline, car generators, electric cash registers, quick-drying paint, diesel-powered trains, magnetic diagnostic devices, the Kettering Foundation and Kettering University. His axioms and aphorisms, called “Ketterisms,? are as vibrant today as they were during his life. He once said, “I object to people running down the future. I am going to live all the rest of my life there.? Although he died in 1958, we are still living in his future and with his inventions.
