Social Musings 101: Cardboard Box Inventor Robert Gair

As we start to get packages for the Holidays and Thanksgiving season I would like to take the time to give a shoutout and thank you to Robert Gair.  According to Wikipedia he is the person who came up with the idea for the cardboard box accidently. He was a book printer and a ruler fell into the machine causing the covers to have several cuts in them. Gair realized that these could be shape because they had slits in them and hence the cardboard. Well thanks a lot Mr. Gair.
