Announcer: And now, "Pensive Moments" with John Green.

John: Some people are shocked to learn that Paul Newman, the famous actor, salad-dressing and tomato-sauce entrepreneur, and philanthropist, was a Kenyon alum, but it's probably fair to say that almost nobody knows about Hamilton L. Smith.

He was a Kenyon College professor of chemistry and physics, who taught at Kenyon from 1853 to 1868, and who, with a student named Peter Neff, Jr., invented the tin-type photograph. True fact - in some art courses today, Kenyon students still learn how to make tin types. At least I think that's a true fact.
