Frank D. Graham


Frank D. Graham

Frank Duncan Graham (1875—19??) was a prolific and eloquent writer of the ever popular and frequently reprinted Audel's guides of various titles. Graham seemed to specialize, however, in subjects related to steam technology and other types of engines.

A few of Graham's more epic works include his eight volume "Audel's Engineers and Mechanics Guide", 1921, which covered subjects as diverse as flying "aeroplanes" to steam engines and house wiring, and the 12 volume "Audel's New Electric Library", 1929, covering practically all that was known about electricity up to the time.

A few (but not all) of the other Audel's books by Graham include: "Audel's Handy Book of Practical Electricity", "Audel's Power Plant Engineer's Guide", "Audel's House Heating Guide", and "Audel's Machinists & Tool Makers Handy Book".

Graham was a graduate of Princeton University, with a BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering and a licensed marine and stationary engineer with the Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey. Graham's place of residence was near Sea Bright, New Jersey, on a farm sometimes referred to in his works as "Stornoway". Graham also built two steam powered yachts as demonstrators of his theories on steam plant construction and management, the "Stornoway" and "Stornoway II". It is not known if either of these vessels survive today.
