People Who contributed to society……..

The next person on the list of people who have contributed to society is John Boyd Dunlop. Mr. Dunlop had a son who would get headaches whenever he rode his bike on rough roads. So Mr. Dunlop went to work and came up with the idea to put a rubber tube around the wood wheel of his son’s bike. He tweaked the tire until it rolled with no problem. Mr. Dunlop applied for a patent on the tire and was initially granted the patent but later taken away after it was discovered someone had drawn and patented the idea. But that doesn’t take away from Mr. Dunlop’s idea or contribution…as the fact that he physically made the product helped all of us. We can now ride smoothly and¬†independently on roads, hills, and all types of surfaces because of the tire. Thank you Mr. Dunlop.
