My life is actually boring enough that I ponder these questions while grocery shopping or doing the dishes. So over the weekend I turned on the computer to find out where paper bags come from. I mean, who thought to turn tree pulp into a bag? When did this happen? Why? Here is what I found out…
History of Paper Bag! Invention:
paper bag machine in 1852
noun / machine to produce paper bag.
A bag made of paper for holding customer’s purchases. Allowing customer to purchase and carry more products
9,355 (US) issued October 26, 1852
First to invent. First to patent. Entrepreneur
December 17, 1817 in Jacobsburg, Pennsylvania
Francis Wolle (1817-1893) invented the paper bag- making machine in 1852 in the United States. Francis Wolle, botanist, born in Jacobsburg, near Nazareth, Pennsylvania, December 17, 1817, was educated in the Moravian parochial school in Bethlehem, and then became a clerk in his father’s store. Subsequently he taught, first at Nazareth hall and then in the higher departments of the Moravian parochial school in Bethlehem. He became in 1857 vice-principal of the Moravian seminary for young ladies, and in 1861 principal of that institution, which place he held until 1881. He was ordained a clergyman in the Moravian church in 1861. In 1852 he patented in the United States, and later in France and England, a machine that he devised for making paper bags. It was the first of its kind, and covers the fundamental principle of the many similar machines that are now used. Further advancements during the 1870s included glued paper sacks and the gusset design, producing the types of paper bags used today.
In 1869, Wolle and his brother and other leading paper bag makers founded the Union Paper Bag Machine Company. Union Bag and Paper Co.’s decision to open a plant in Savannah was great news to depressed Savannah in 1935. The company, founded by paper bag machine inventor Francis Wolle, opened its $4 million plant with 500 workers the next year. Savannah citizens streamed through the plant on opening day to ooh and ahh at the production of a thousand feet of paper per minute. The plant is still in operation today.
