This Invention Helps Cool Things Off
One of everyones summer time favorite invention is most likely air conditioning. While I can remember not having an air conditioner most of my life or just a window air conditioner in the living room window only, without it we may have melted or sweated to death who knows.
Thanks to Willis Carrier who invented modern air conditioning in July 1902. The invention would improve the way that we live, work and play.
Carrier was born November 26, 1876 in Angola New York. He would go to Cornell University and earn an engineering degree. Develop A.C. in 1902 and go on to create Carrier Engineering Corporations in 1915. He would die in 1950. In 1985 Carrier was inducted into the national inventors hall of fame. Time named Carrier as one of the "100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century"
