Gideon Sundback,

Born on April 24, 1880, in Sm├ąland, Sweden, he moved to Germany following his studies and emigrated in 1905 to the US, where he started to work at Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

A year later, he was hired to work for the Universal Fastener Company in Hoboken, New Jersey, and became its head designer in 1909.

Sundback initially proposed the new zipper as a replacement for hook-and-eye fasteners on women’s boots but it had become a regular feature for the flies of trousers and on dresses by the 1930s.

Sundback died of a heart condition in 1954 and was interred at Greendale cemetery in Meadville, Pennsylvania
