In 1959, Crawford Greenewalt wrote: “The story of America is the story of common men who were inspired to uncommon levels of accomplishment." No one fits that description better than its author. The son of a physician, Greenewalt rose to incredible heights. A key figure in the Manhattan Project, Greenewalt also made major contributions to chemical engineering, ran the DuPont Company, one of the largest corporations in the world, and published a definitive study of the world’s hummingbirds. This film tells the story of his amazingly uncommon life.
