Maria Love opened the nation's first daycare, revolutionizing women's role in the labor force. Life around the globe was never the same after Willis Carrier invented modern air conditioning in 1902. Wilson Greatbatch's implantable pacemaker has saved millions of lives. Author Nancy Mingus reveals the mavericks who dared to think differently in Buffalo's innovative history.
