The quote is credited to Sir Alastair Pilkington  in 1976. He was referring to developing float glass.

Pilkington's website gives some details: http://www.pilkington.com/pilkington-information/about+pilkington/education/float+process/default.htm 

Please let me know if you would like additional information.

I hope you return to Corning and the museum soon!

Thank You!
