"Skip" Fisher

Carl Fisher lived during an age of invention during the late 19th and early 20th Century that brought us the telephone, the automobile, airplanes, electrification and more - all still fundamental drivers of the global economy in the 21st Century. Fisher paticipated in these developments to some degree by introducing innovations such as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the first viable automobile headlights with Prest-O-Lite. Fisher's fascination with the latest technology naturally drove him to acquire automobiles, airships and motorboats. The attached articles reference Fisher's ownership of early speed boats and his intention to enter the business of designing and building them - as well as race them. Fisher's enthusiasm for speed boats and racing them earned him the nickname "Skip," short for "skipper" among his friends.
