Transcript of Gas Mask

The Gas Mask By: Lauren Massaro What's the Point? Impact Today: Video Resources: The Inventor Business... Parents The Inventor... Garrett A. Morgan was the inventor of the gas mask. He was born in Paris, Kentucky on March 4, 1877. He had 10 sibilings- some older, some younger. He was a mix between Indian and African decent. After he completed elementary school he dropped out, although he did get a private tutor. His mother's name was Elizabeth Morgan, but it is still indecisive whether his father was Confederate
Colonial John Hunt Morgan or former slave, Sydney
Morgan. Before Garrett invented the gas mask, he
and his wife, Mary, owned a tailoring shop. In addition to that, Garrett also created a hair refining company. The gas mask was originally created to protect soilders
from the harmful gases, smoke, and other fumes
during WWI. Garrett won 1st place at the second International Exposition of Safety and Sanitation in
New York City. The gas mask has benifited many soilders and firefighters to this day. It prevents the fumes and gases from entering human's airways. Without it, the majority of people that went into situations involving gases and fumes would pass out or die because they wouldn't have anything to prevent them from breathing in the harmful gases.
