John Ericsson Memorial
Biography of John Ericsson
John Ericsson (1803 - 1889) was from Sweden, and trained as a mechanical engineer. He moved to England in 1826 with a plan for a "heat engine" that used birch trees as fuel for powering the engine. However, in England the main source of burning material is coal, and Ericsson's prototype heat engine failed to function effectively with coal. He then devised several other inventions that either failed or only succeeded in a minor way, and the costs eventually placed Ericsson into debtors prison.
