Janet Gardner grew up in the Dayton area, and was inspired by the Wright Brothers to produce her film "Mechanic to Millionaire: The Peter Cooper Story". Cooper was a 19th century inventor and philanthropist. WYSO's Emily McCord spoke with Gardner about her upbringing and why Peter Cooper should hold an important place in American history.
