the life and letters of the first woman member of ASME

Catherine Anselm “Kate” Gleason was an engineer and a businesswoman who was born in 1865. She was a revolutionary in the male-dominated field of engineering. Gleason also became ASME’s first woman member in 1914.

A book on Kate Gleason, The Life and Letters of Kate Gleason, has been written by Janis F. Gleason, the wife of the great nephew of Kate Gleason who is chairman of the Rochester, N.Y.-based Gleason Corp., a manufacturer of gears and related technologies.

The book, which is being released this month, will be excerpted in an upcoming issue of Mechanical Engineering magazine. I spent a few minutes talking with Jan about her book. Click on the link to listen to the conversation: An interview with Jan Gleason.
