THE POLISH-AMERICAN PRESS TOWARDS INVENTIVE ACHIEVEMENTS OF COMPATRIOTS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
The question of inventiveness among the Polish diaspora in the US untill now has not become a subject of comprehensive study. This important area of human activity being omitted is a substantial weakness in a diagnosis of Poles’ contribution to the development of civilization of the United States of America. It appears that the daily press is an important primary source of an inventive output for the study. The contents’ analysis of the most important Polish Diaspora papers indicates that a lot of space was dedicated to innovation and technological progress. The author of the article brings up a number of examples of technical achievements and argues that Polish diaspora in the US has been keenly interested in the inventiveness and technological progress and has appreciated its significance. The article also discusses attempts to organize inventive movement of Poles in the US. The author also points out that the Polish diaspora regards inventiveness and innovative entrepreneurship as elements of social and economic emancipation of the Polish diaspora.
