About the author

Charlie is a former 23-year employee of the Merrimack Valley Works, hired as a 209-grade Quality Appraiser, and advancing to Member of Technical Staff and a recipient of the Engineer Excellence Award.

He is currently an Administrative Instructional Specialist at Lowell High School in Massachusetts, working in education since 2005.

The idea of creating a book on the Merrimack Valley Works is one that spun around in his brain for about 20 years. The amount of collected materials finally got too overwhelming to ignore. Creating the book was a labor of love and a sincere tribute to all of the fantastic memories, inspirational leaders, engineering brilliance, cutting-edge telecommunications products, skillful production associates, and thousands of forever friends from MVW.
