As well as being a politician and political philosopher, he was also a tireless inventor (much like his contemporary Ben Franklin) and created designs for the dumb-waiter (an early service elevator) and an improved sundial, as well as architectural designs for his home at Monticello. He was also deeply interested in science of all stripes and was a competent violin player. See more »
