Walter Scherr who brought the fax machine to the world in the late 1900s is interviewed by David Cogan of Eliances Heroes radio show amfm. The fax tech pioneer not only revolutionized telephonic communication, he was the leader of major international corporations, but he didn't get his start there. A depression era boy who had tuberculosis and lived in a sanitorium for 6 years, he has lived his life with determination and a no-quit attitude to start or lead such companies as Visual Sciences Inc and Panafax, Sperry Gyroscope, and Litton Industries. In his book Walter's Way, he educates, entertains, and inspires everyone, from business executives to veterans to lovers of life, as well as giving a first-hand account of America’s emergence as a post-WWII industrial powerhouse.
