"A man of great energy and many talents, Eric Sloane (1905-1985) was a prolific artists, author and illustrator of over 30 books, and an avid collector of Americana. His extensive collection of hand tools is displayed in a building gifted to the State by the Connecticut-based Stanley Works to mark the company's 125th anniversary. The collection tells a fascinating story about bygone times and the great American heritage of craftsmanship."
