Webster Inventors
   Benjamin C
   Benjamin C Jr.




A number of family members, many originally from the Leeds area or England, moved to the United States.

Benjamin C, son of William Webster was born in San Francisco.

The Children were sent back to England for their education. Passenger lists show multiple trips for some family members. Benjamin continued his education at the University of Leeds with degrees in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering.

The turn of the century still marked the early years of electrical engineering. After his graduation, Benjamin participated in a special course of electrical engineering in Germany.

It is gratifying to hear today's engineers speak of the many present day inventions that are still based, in part, on his original patents.
