    (July 4, 1871-January 12, 1955)
    Inventor of the vacuum cleaner
    His invention is very noisy.
    Originally, the vacuum was marketed only to the wealthy.
    He was an aggressive salesman.
    He had droopy eyes.
    His machine doesn't actually create a vacuum.
    He must have endured jokes that his vacuum sucked.
    His vacuum makes floor cleaning quick and easy.
    He was inspired by American railroad car cleaners that blew dust into a container.
    He reversed that process by using sucking instead of blowing.
    He tested this process by having his machine suck in his handkerchief.
    He demonstrated his invention to the royal family at Buckingham Palace (1901).
