Black Elephants

Who is Jessie T. Pope?

Like Lyda D. Newman, she is another black woman who invented something used on a daily basis all over the world. While living in Detroit, her invention impressed Eleanor Roosevelt so much that they worked together to receive US Patent 2,409,791 on October 22, 1946 for the croquignole iron.

While working as a beautician, she saw a need for an electric curling iron that was thermostatically controlled. This thermostat allowed the iron to maintain a steady, even temperature.

Have a blessed week!
