Wallingford can boast of three noteworthy individuals; Lyman Batcheller who designed and manufactured light-weight pitch forks, Gilbert Hart who made his fortune with the emery wheel invention and provided money for Wallingford's Gilbert Hart Library, and Paul Harris, who received his education in Wallingford, and founded Rotary Internation.
