  • Topical: Origins of the Dishwasher
    The story of Josephine Garis Cochran started when she was born on Mar.8, 1839, in Ashtabula County, Ohio, northeast of Cleveland. Her family influenced her to think outside of the box. Her mothers’ father, John Fitch, invented the first patented steamboat in the U.S. Her father, John Garis, was a civil engineer who managed several woolen mills, sawmills, and gristmills along the Ohio River. So, it was no wonder that when she saw a problem, she looked for a way to solve it.

The query apparently led two local men, Arthur Romerhaus and Henry Meyer, to publish an article in the Evansville Courier asking anyone interested in stamp collecting to come to the store. Romerhaus and Meyer, a schoolteacher with a vast collection of Hawaiian stamps, were joined by seven others at a meeting. The Evansville Stamp Club became official on Oct. 2, 1929, and it’s still going strong… Read more: Stamp of Approval
