Just a small point: notice how Cory's language helps perpetuate the myth of the glorious individual as he writes the man who built the Futurama. Bel Geddes did not, of course, build the Futurama, though clearly it was his conception and under his direction. The Futurama was a collaborative project, like almost all other human activities, and although we should give special attention to the remarkable individuals who conceive of new wonders (let alone those who find the energy to see them through to creation), it does not serve us well as humans to continually discount the work put in by others as if it was interchangeable. An effort like the Futurama requires both the imagination and energy of someone like Bel Geddes and the skills and labor or many others who help to make it tangible.
This is true even if much of the crew considered him “nuts.”
