How does a 200+ year old company stay relevant in today's "paperless" world? Charlie Kittredge, Chairman and CEO of Crane & Co. reveals how. One of the oldest names in paper making, Crane & Co., best known for its high-end stationery, is literally printing money. The company, based in Dalton, Massachusetts, and run by the same family since its founding in 1801, has a lucrative contract to manufacture currency paper for the U.S. Treasury and print money for countries such as Sweden, Saudi Arabia and India. And, by adapting paper making technology to create a range of new products, it has moved into markets as diverse as energy, environmental services and office furnishings.

John Abele, co-founder of Boston Scientific will talk about his quest to solve the mystery of the USS Grunion, a World War II submarine that sank without a trace off the Aleutian Islands. All hands were lost, including John's father, the commander of the sub. For decades, the U.S. Navy was unable to reveal further information about the sub's fate—it had simply vanished. But Commander Jim Abele's family never gave up their quest to discover the truth. They repeatedly applied to the Navy, corresponded with the families of crew members, consulted with Japanese sources, and finally undertook the quixotic task of locating the Grunion herself. More than six decades after the submarine's loss, Jim Abele's three sons astonished the experts by locating the lost submarine 3,000 feet below the surface of one of the world's most dangerous bodies of water.
