Conrad & The Steamplant

I spent New Year's 2014 on the Pratt Campus, not far from my apartment, listening to an army of steam whistles pipe open the New Year. Steam was blasting everywhere. It was loud, chaotic, joyful and absolutely incredible. 

The man behind the show was Conrad Milster, chief engineer at Pratt. He's been there for some six decades. A total character, this mini-doc is a fascinating look at the man behind the steam. 

Pratt steam whistles going off last night!
