An illustrated lecture by Dr. James A Welu,
Director Emeritus, Worcester Art Museum
Best known as a patriot during the American Revolution, Paul Revere was a man of many talents. Silversmith, engraver, and early industrialist, Revere ranks among the most entrepreneurial of early Americans. He also provided metals and labels for Willard clocks. This lecture focuses on Paul Revere’s career as a silversmith, including his most important commission, the Paine Silver Service, one of the Worcester Art Museum’s greatest treasures.
