Gothic Arches - Inventors

Ivar Jepson. Who is he??? Well, he's the man who transformed Sunbeam from a manufacturer of sheep shears to one of most household appliances. While the mixmaster had already been invented back in 1885, he refined it and made it an easier appliance to use. Before, it was like an industrial product, even sounding like a big machine. Jepson designed so many products from meatball makers to garden sprinkler. Yet Sunbeam execs trashed most of his documents and files which took Ivar Jepson into undeserved obscurity. So, thank you, Ivar Jepson, for your wonderful designs and inventions...all homemakers certainly appreciate you!
