William Howard Taft Bobblehead

William Howard Taft Bobblehead

William Howard Taft was born in Cincinnati, OH on September 15, 1857, to parents Alphonso and Louise Taft. Taft’s father was a prominent judge, greatly influencing the path that he would follow in his own career. Taft attended Yale University with the intent of pursuing a career in law, and a dream of one day gaining a seat on the Supreme Court.

Taft was elected as the 27th president of the United States in 1909, where his greatest contributions led to efforts in busting trusts, the empowerment of the ICC to set railroad rates, setting mandates for a federal income tax, and establishing the direct election of senators by the American people. He would only serve one four-year term as president.

In 1921 Taft was appointed chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court by President Warren G. Harding, making Taft the only president to have also served the post of chief justice. Taft served in this position until he died on March 8, 1930.

Josephine Cochrane Bobblehead

Josephine Cochrane, a socialite who frequently hosted extravagant parties, set out to find an existing machine that would properly wash her heirloom china while eliminating the risk of damage from handwashing. Her attempts in doing so were unsuccessful, leading her to begin developing her own idea. Cochrane struggled to get the final product produced complaining that “I couldn’t get men to do things I wanted in my way until they tried and failed in their own.” She was finally able to find someone to build the product to her specifications and on December 28, 1886, US Patent No. 355,139 was granted to Josephine Cochrane for a Dish Washing Machine. In 1893 she showed her invention at the Chicago World’s Fair where she won top honors for the “best mechanical construction, durability and adaptation to its line of work.” She continued to make improvements to her invention. A second patent was eventually granted for her invention in 1917 (US Patent No. 1,223,380). Josephine Cochrane founded the Crescent Washing Machine Company to manufacture her invention. The company was acquired by the Hobart Manufacturing Company in 1916, three years after her death. Hobart introduced dishwashers for home use under the KitchenAid brand. In 1986, KitchenAid was acquired by Whirlpool. Josephine Cochrane was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2006.
