With 20 patents to his credit and over 45 years experience in direct product development, Larry Happ is now extending his love of challenges and engineering to serve on the GLAS Board. After living and working in Illinois, he has returned to his roots in the Geneva Lake area and has graciously drawn on his expertise to mentor students in engineering and design projects. It was Larry’s connection to Acme Design that prompted the creation of 3D molds of the architectural images in the Yerkes Observatory rotunda and entrance columns. These molds were invaluable in providing blind and low vision students with aids to enhance their observatory experience and will continue to be accessible aids in understanding the history of Yerkes.
