Black History Moment: Alexander Miles (1838-1918)
Alexander Miles’s elevator design has contributed to saving so many lives. Before him, elevators were operated manually; people had to consciously open and close the doors of both the elevator and the shaft every time. Miles realized the constant hazard this posed when riding on an elevator with the shaft door open with his daughter. In 1887, he obtained the patent for his invention including a flexible belt attached to the elevator cage, allowing the doors to function automatically. He was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2007.
