John Byron Plato was a North American inventor and map publisher, who contributed to wayfinding in the early decades of the 20th century, when the automobile and an emerging network of improved roads were opening the countryside as never before.

This talk will focus on the source materials that enabled a book-length exploration of Plato’s life and work.
