BORDEN, Gail [1801-1874] -- American inventor (condensed milk), founder of Borden Milk Co.

Relationship to me: 6C3
BORDEN family Outline Descent Tree(s) ODT
Contents:

His first invention was a "meat biscuit", which didn't do well. He then turned to finding a way to preserve milk, eventually hitting on a process of evaporation under vacuum, which ultimately proved quite successful.

Successive failures of two milk condensing plants in Connecticut in 1856 and 1857 exhausted his already dwindled reserves. The backing of a New York financier, however, allowed him to continue a few more years. It was not until the outbreak of the Civil War, and the resulting demand for longer lasting condensed milk by the Union army, that Borden's success was finally assured.
