The Life of Earle Dickson

Dickson worked as a cotton buyer at the Johnson & Johnson company. His wife was prone to kitchen accidents. He had to put bandages on her small cuts and burns all the time. After a great number of these small injuries, Dixon decided to make something which she can easily apply herself. He invented an adhesive bandage. He later showed his invention to his boss, who liked the idea, and put it into production.
