George Grant - Dec. 12, 1899

Did you know that golf was a totally different sport before Dr. George Grant came along?
Although he never capitalized on his invention, Dr. Grant was definitely the first person to patent the golf tee.
Instead, he had prototypes made for his own personal use and handed them out to family and friends.

Granville Tailer Woods
April 23, 1856 - January 30, 1910

Referred to by some as the "Black Edison"

Mr. Woods is on this list twice.
He was granted a patent for the Telephone Transmitter in 1884 and the Automatic Cut-off Switch in 1889. However, over the course of his lifetime Mr. Woods held more than 50 patents in the U.S. One of his notable inventions was a device he called the Synchronous Multiplex Railway Telegraph, a variation of induction telegraph which relied on ambient static electricity from existing telegraph lines to send messages between train stations and moving trains.
His work assured a safer and better public transportation system for the cities of the United States.
He was also the first African American mechanical and electrical engineer after the Civil War.
