Some 157 years ago, on 30th March, Hymen Lipman received the first US patent for his “pencil with attached eraser” invention. While this pencil was different from the pencil-with-eraser we know today, it did pave the path for today’s pencil. Just imagine a writing-time where you have to hold on to a separate eraser all the time. Exactly! It doesn’t sound very convenient. Hence, thank you Mr. Lipman and Happy Pencil Day to you all.
