Lewis Latimer was a very talented draftsman and patenter who helped many great inventors patent their inventions and the inventors taking all the credit for that invention that he invented. Some of the inventors that he patented for were Hiram Maxim, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell. He help patent the light bulb, telephone, and indecent lighting with Hiram Maxim. Other inventions that were not as big as the other inventions but still helped the community advance in society. These inventions were improving the railroad car bathrooms, and invent a early air conditioning unit, which was probably really nice for people coming home after a long hard day.
