GOODYEAR, Charles [1800-1860] -- American inventor (vulcanization of rubber)

Relationship to me: 5C7
GOODYEAR family Outline Descent Tree(s) ODT
Contents:

Discovered and patented the vulcanization process which stabilizes natural rubber, turning it from a mostly useless material into something with all the properties we are accustomed to. Rubber is an essential commodity in today's world. Despite his patents, poor Charles never made much money from it, and died in poverty. The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, named in his honor, was formed nearly forty years after his death. Charles Goodyear never made a single tire.  -30-
