A Great, nearly unknown, Hero

I would like for us all to take a moment to remember Maurus C. Logan.
 
Mr. Logan worked for Thomas & Betts, an electrical company, and eventually ended his career with the company as its Vice President of Research and Development, a title he more than earned.
 
While touring a Boeing aircraft plant in 1956, he observed various aircraft being wired. Aircraft wiring was a cumbersome and detailed undertaking during this time, involving thousands of feet of wire organized on sheets of 50-foot long plywood and held in place with knotted, waxcoated, braided nylon cord. Each knot had to be pulled tight by wrapping the cord around one's finger which sometimes cut the operator's fingers until they developed thick calluses or "hamburger hands." Maurus was convinced there had to be an easier, more forgiving, way to accomplish this critical task. For the next couple of years, he experimented with various tools and materials.
 
Then finally, in 1958, he had created his solution. On June 24, 1958, a patent for the cable tie, more ubiquitously known as the zip tie, was submitted. Thus, one of the great unsung heroes of aircraft, car, and PC builder everywhere was created.
 
Mr. Logan passed away on November 12, 2007 at the age of 86.
