Inventor
    (January 23, 1920-February 9, 2010)
    Invented the Frisbee
    Father invented the seal beamed headlight
    His early 'Flyin' Saucers' were made of a plastic that would turn brittle in colder weather and cause it to crumble into many pieces if it hit a hard surface.
    His return policy was a free replacement 'Flyin' Saucer' only if all the pieces of a broken one was returned (only four people were able to take advantage of this offer).
    His marketing scheme was to sell invisible wire at a price of $1.00 for 100 feet which included a free 'Flyin' Saucer.'
    He would put up two poles and throw the saucer from one pole to the other claiming it was riding the invisible wire.
    As a kid he would hurl paint lid caps, pie tins and plates.
    He was aware of the fad at Yale to toss Frisbie Pie Tins.
    The UFO incident in 1947 turn the nation into Flying Saucer fanatics and sparked him to create a flying saucer toy, but found tin and other metal discs just not as aerodynamic.
    He decided to work with modern plastics, which was starting to become more common after World War II.
    He bought a plastic molding machine and designed what would be the first Frisbees.
    By 1951, he renamed 'Flyin' Saucers' the 'Pluto Platter' and made it out of a tougher plastic.
    He sold the 'Pluto Platter' to Wham-O who renamed it the Frisbee and sold millions.
    The U.S. Navy (Project N00164-49-0662) experimented with a Frisbee like device to be used as a flare (1969).
