Who Was Milton Bradley? by Kirsten Anderson

Who Was Milton Bradley? by Kirsten Anderson, 117 pages

I love these Who Was...? biographies.  Although, they are written for kids, these books are great reads for adults too.

Milton Bradley was a young man born in 1836 from Maine who moved to Massachusetts to find more lucrative work.  Milton was a brilliant inventor and printer.  He is considered the father of modern board games.  Not only did he invent the Checkered Game of Life which later became known as the Game of Life in the 1960s, he also developed a lot of educational products. He developed educational toys for kindergartners and also created game packages to entertain the troops. Milton Bradley was truly a creative man!
