Nos premiers inventeurs
Abstract
Canadian Patents of Invention were granted starting with the beginning of the Patent Office in June 1824 and were enforced in Lower Canada and Upper Canada under the provisions of various statutes. Patent No. 1 was issued to Noah Cushing of Quebec City on June 8, 1824. Cushing invented a machine to be used for the washing and "fulling" of woolen cloth. The fulling process involved applying moisture, heat, friction and pressure to woolen fabric. This process created the fabric known as felt. The author deals with other inventors of the era.
