Fascinating facts about Garrett Morgan - inventor of the traffic light in 1923 PDF Print E-mail

Garrett Augustus Morgan (1877-1963), is best known for his invention of the automatic traffic signal. He also is the inventor of the gas mask, used by firemen in the early 1900s and by soldiers in World War I.

Morgan was born on March 4, 1877, in Paris, Kentucky, the seventh of eleven children. His formal education ended with fifth grade at 14 years old at which time he left home and moved about until he ended up in Cleveland. In 1901 he sold his first
invention, a sewing machine sales and repair shop and then a tailoring shop two years later. While trying to repair a sewing machine he created and patented the first chemical human hair straightener. 

Financially secure, Morgan focused his attention on other ideas. In 1912 he developed a gas mask and the traffic signal in 1923.
