Black Elephants

Who is Lyda D. Newman?


While very little is known about this woman, her invention is used on a daily basis all over the world. She was born in Ohio around 1885 but later moved to New York City. She received U.S. patent 614,355 for her invention in November 15, 1898.

So what is this invention? It is none other than the common plastic hair brush. While she did not invent the hair brush, she made significant improvements for improved hygiene and use. Be sure to thank her next time you grab your favorite brush.

Have a blessed weekend!
