Columbus’ water tragedy became the world’s water solution.
After Senator Marcus Hannah – a presidential hopeful at the the turn of the twentieth century – contracted typhoid from Columbus tap water and died soon after, the embarrassed city rushed into action. The Columbus Experiment was born. Scientists and a collection of nationally renowned men who were taught the science of sanitary engineering at MIT by a forgotten and uncredited female chemist devised a plan and mobilized an army of workers into action in spite of the ceaseless internal strife of city politicians. The result was a water treatment system that all but eliminated the scourge of typhoid, cholera and many other waterborne diseases from the civilized world, saving perhaps millions of lives.
