Local entrepreneur and philanthropist, Janis F. Gleason, signed copies of her new book, The Life and Letters of Kate Gleason, on Nov. 18. RIT’s College of Engineering is named after Kate Gleason, an industrialist, mechanical engineer and real estate developer. The book, published by RIT Press, came to fruition after the author’s husband, James S. Gleason, the grandnephew of Kate Gleason and chairman of the Gleason Corp., allowed her access to family files that were discovered on the top floor of Gleason Works.
