To all,

For those who like trivia: invention did not stop with the O’Brien Brothers, inventors and founders of the South Bend lathe company.  Their daughter/niece was an inventor as well.  Marion O'Brien Donovan is best remembered for inventing the disposable diaper, among several inventions and patents to her name.  See: http://www.peutertje.nl/marion_donovan.htm
