In honor of BlackHistoryMonth, today we celebrate the accomplishments of 2001 NIHF Inductee Elijah McCoy. McCoy received his first patent for an automatic lubricating device in 1872. Previously, engines had to be stopped before necessary lubrication could be applied. With McCoy’s invention, engines could be lubricated while they ran - saving precious time and money.
