Role of Gasoline in Engine Development 510189

IN this Horning Memorial Lecture, Dr. Barnard shows that gasoline has played a major role in the development of the automobile from a noisy, odorous, temperamental vehicle to the dependable, highly engineered mechanism of today. (Dr. Barnard received the Horning Memorial Medal for 1949.)
