Summertime Travel Tuesday!
It was the Summer Solstice and a Strawberry Moon last week and it’s been HOT in the city of Los Angeles since then. And even HOTTER in the beautiful San Fernando Valley!
We’re having a heat wave and it’s not a tropical heatwave.
So, Hats Off to WILLIS HAVILAND CARRIER inventor of the Air Conditioner!
July 17, 1902 – Willis Carrier designed the first modern air-conditioning system to solve a production problem at the Sackett & Wilhelms printing plant in Brooklyn, New York.
1904 – Willis Carrier applied for a patent on his invention, an “Apparatus for Treating Air,” which became patent No. 808897 and was issued on January 2, 1906. Carrier had invented the world’s first spray-type air conditioning equipment, able to both wash and humidify or dehumidify air.
1913 – Willis Carrier developed the Carrier Air Humidifier designed to humidify the air in one room, such as an office or laboratory. It was the first self-contained unit with the fan and motor, eliminator, and sprays all combined into a single, packaged product.
July 1, 1915 – The first offices of Carrier Engineering Corporation open in New York, Buffalo, Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston.
On October 7, 1950, shortly before his 74th birthday, Willis Carrier died while on a trip to New York City.
December 1998 – Willis Carrier named in Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People of the Century.”
