Born on September 15th
James Fenimore Cooper – 1789
The American writer is best known for his frontier stories. In his Leatherstocking Tales, he created memorable characters such as Natty Bumbo and Hawkeye.
George Franklin Grant – 1846
Not only was Grant the first African American on the Harvard faculty, but he also invented the first golf tee. While he never marketed the invention, it was patented on December 12, 1899.
Jan Ernst Matzeliger – 1852
Matzeliger’s invention demonstrated how innovation often leads to more jobs, not fewer. In 1883, the shoemaker received patent No. 274,207 for a lasting machine that could produce 700 shoes a day. Before his invention, production was slow, and shoes were mostly handmade. However, after his machine was put to use, more employees were required to keep pace with the increased production.
Edward A. Bouchet – 1852
The physicist and teacher became the first African American to earn a Ph.D. in America. He would advocate for better educational opportunities for his students and was a member of the Franklin Institute and the American Academy of Political and Social Science.
William Howard Taft – 1857
The 27th president of the United States was more than a politician. After serving his presidential term, Taft continued his distinguished law career and became the 10th chief justice of the United States. In 1911, during his presidential term, he also proposed an idea that became known as the Chamber of Commerce.
Claude McKay – 1889
A student of the Tuskegee Institute and Kansas State College, McKay’s poems and novels spoke of social and political divisions. At the time, his work was a major influence in the Harlem Renaissance. Works like his novel Home to Harlem and poets like If “We Must Die” brought a literary response to the movement.
Agatha Christie – 1890
The prolific mystery writer is also the world’s best-selling author of fiction. With estimates soaring to the 2 billion mark, Christie’s works have also inspired television series and movies.
