In praise of inventors

President Ronald Reagan in 1983 declared February 11 as National Inventor’s Day. The date chosen was the birthday of Thomas Edison, who is widely considered to have been the most prolific and famous inventor in American history. Edison held more than 1,000 patents for inventions, though his most famous invention by far was of course the light bulb.
