Here is a fascinating story of the first woman to obtain a United States Patent for her invention of the Paper Bag Machine in 1879. She lived in Framingham at 287 Hollis.
For many women inventors in years past, the invention process was twice as difficult because, in addition to the hardships of inventing, they also faced the skepticism of a world that didn’t believe women could create something of value. Fortunately, over the years, that perception has been blown out of the water by women inventors like Margaret E. Knight, who were willing to fight for the accolades and recognition they unquestionably deserved. She is the original "bag lady." This is another Bit of Southside History. Please read the article:
