136 Years Ago

Otto Frederick Rohwedder was born in Davenport, Iowa.

I have little doubt that everyone who reads this has benefited from his work.

Mr. Rohwedder was the inventor of the bread-slicer, an invention that he worked on for sixteen years before submitting the patent application. His machine automatically sliced a loaf and then wrapped it.

Without his machine, the toaster likely would have not sold very well, as it worked best with bread that was uniformly sliced.
