Our class recently learned about Whitcomb Judson, inventor of a clasp-locking system which eventually turned into the modern day zipper. Although Judson died before seeing his invention cultivated by people such as Gideon Sundback and B.F. Goodrich, we acknowledge his commitment to making the process of putting on clothing easier. Sometimes, however, we take our modern conveniences for granted. My question to my students was “How would life be different if we did not have zippers?”.
