This Mom is Great at Correcting Mistakes!
Bette Nesmith Graham – This single mom is responsible for inventing liquid paper. She is also the mom of Michael Nesmith, who played in the band “The Monkees.”
After dropping out of high school, Graham went to secretarial school. She worked her way up to become an executive secretary. Soon after Graham and her colleagues experienced problems with the new IBM electric typewriters. If there was an error, she would literally have to retype the entire page. Graham decided on a more efficient alternative. She started out mimicking painters techniques by using water based paint. The experiment grew and developed into the highly successful Graham Liquid Paper Company. (See Women Inventors)
