Princeton, Illinois, January 13, 2011, Edward Caldwell, Retired Engineer formerly of Taylor-Winfield Corporation, has been recognized by Elite American Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in electronic engineering.
For 43 years, Mr. Caldwell worked for Taylor-Winfield Corporation, an engineering firm that provides the design and manufacture of specialty welding, metalworking and automation equipment. As an engineer, he was responsible for producing electronic appliances, which he enacted by employing the skills he gathered while serving in the U.S. Army. A passionate worker, he relied on the support of his wife and family to persevere while exhibiting laud professionalism in the face of obstacles. He credits his success to his ability to learn about electronic engineering while on the job.
In his spare time, Mr. Caldwell conducts research on the Cherry Mine Disaster, which has held his interest in since 1975. Sparked by the desire to know the history of his community, he realized quickly that there was little information available regarding what actually happened during the crisis. Mr. Caldwell has spent years gathering articles, photos, and documents about the mine, the fire and its aftermath. Further, he has unmasked diaries, coroner’s inquest notes, mine commission reports and books. To centralize his findings, Mr. Caldwell catalogued all of it on a series of DVDs, which was accepted to the Abraham Lincoln presidential library in Springfield, Illinois.
