In 1925, Richard Drew of the 3M Company produced the first roll of Scotch tape. In 1930, he created cellophane tape. Just think if all the things we use tape for and how often we use it. We could always tie our packages with ribbons and twine, but you can't tie a tear in a paper!
Thank you, Mr. Drew, for making our lives so much easier ... and not in the way computers and technology makes our lives "easier"!
