    Thank you. This was so interesting. Now I want to go to NYC Public Library to see the Fair archives of artifacts.

    Loved this! So Buck Rogers! In addition to Welles and Huxley, E.M. Forester made a huge prediction in the short story, "The Machine Stops". It was published in a collection called "The Eternal Minute", 1928. Forester is better remembered for Passage to India and Room with a View. But his short story is amazing. He predicted the internet!
