BHM SPOTLiGHT: The Love Sharpener

What's one thing you need when you're taking a test? Sure, the answers may be nice, but if you're using a Scantron, or taking a math exam, a pencil would be ideal. Which leads me to John Lee Love, our Black History Month Spotlight Inventor. Love invented the pencil sharpener in 1897. Pretty cool huh?! Still don't think it's a big deal? Well, for all of those who use a sharpener to when applying makeup, you can thank Mr. Love for that. Johm Lee Love's pencil sharpener was patented on November 23, 1897 (U.S. Patent # 594,114).
