Egg Beater

Rotary Egg Beaters.

Willis Johnson patented an improved egg beater in 1884. The BBC says he invented the egg beater, but about.com says he improved upon it. He was black. I would like to know if his children and grandchildren, and great grandchildren, and great-great children enjoyed the benefits of his patent. Or maybe he didn’t have kids. There isn’t an abundance of information on his personal life. I gave up after the first few pages of results though.

Status: Keep. This particular object has been used in a photographic series I did in 2010, “Butterine” and may yet expand upon. Find out more about Willis Johnson.

Kill-ratio: My notes are at the stuffice. So guessing 18:1
