T2 Fact


In 1902, only one year after Willis Haviland Carrier graduated from Cornell University with a master’s in engineering, the first air conditioning (temperature and humidity) was in operation in a Brooklyn printing plant. Fluctuations in heat and humidity in the plant had caused the printing paper to keep altering slightly, enough to misalign the colored inks. The new air conditioning machine created a stable environment and aligned four-color printing became possible.
