Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
    (January 5, 1855-July 9, 1932)
    Inventor of the safety razor (Gillette Razors)
    Wrote 'The Human Drift (1904) and 'The People's Corporation' (1924)
    His name is 'King.'
    He lived by the principal of inventing something cheap, useful, and disposable.
    Although the idea of the disposable razor was his, he worked with William Nickerson who helped craft the design (1903).
    They named the razor Gillette, because Nickerson was too close to nick, which is something you don't want the razor to do.
    He published an idea of a world corporation where all (then) 60 million Americans would live in a giant mansion with a common dining hall.
    Everyone would have an equal share in this single corporation.
    He always wanted to meet Henry Ford, and when they met, the two of them were yelling at each other before the meeting ended.
    Despite being anti-capitalist, he had no problem accumulating millions.
    At 16 years old, his family lost everything in a fire (1871).
    His idea was to do away with using an expensive piece of steel to shave, since all you need is a thin piece of disposable metal that just holds a sharp edge.
