Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lewis H. Nash (1852-1923) was an American engineer who invented the liquid-ring-vacuum pump, and was the holder of over a hundred United States patents for pumps, engines, and other equipment. He founded the Nash Engineering Company in 1905, and served in the Connecticut General Assembly.Nash completed his public school education in South Norwalk, Connecticut, in 1869. He wanted to continue his education, but his parents were unable to pay for college, so he took an apprenticeship course as a machinist at the Norwalk Iron Works. Lewis next enrolled at a new institution, the Stevens Institute of Technology, which offered courses in the new field of Mechanical Engineering. He joined its third class, was elected into Tau Beta Pi, and graduated as class valedictorian.
