Charles Goodyear (December 29, 1800 - July 1, 1860) was the first American to vulcanize rubber, a process which he discovered in 1839 and patented on June 15, 1844. Although Goodyear is often credited with its invention, modern evidence has proven that the Mesoamericans used stabilized rubber for balls and other objects as early as 1600 BC. Goodyear discovered the vulcanization process accidentally after five years of research. In 1898, after his death, the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company was founded and named after Goodyear by Frank Seiberling. MEEN 222 – 501 Fall 2009 Quiz #9 Student: SOLUTION Print First and Last Name
