Patents include recovering acids and toxic metals from combustion emissions, supercritical wet oxidation, and converting waste debris to fuels and biodegradable plastics. James also receives the Ohio Historical Society William H. and Benjamin Harrison Award for an Ohio-Related Family History.

Titmas writes, “Opa was back from his business trip. Jimmy and Bess loved to be with their grandfather and listen to his stories. Jamie was there too. Jamie was almost always there as well. It was Jamie’s second home, especially when his mother was at work. Chesi was there too, listening and sitting quietly beside Jamie as if Chesi understood every word.”

Published by Page Publishing, James Titmas’s riveting tale tells of a family living in the wilderness on the frontier, just after the American Revolution. The children get a chance to learn a little about archeology and Native American crafts and culture.
