    In 1846, French musician-inventor Adolphe Sax filed 14 patents for an instrument destined to revolutionize American music nearly a century later; he called it the saxophone. U.S. production began in 1888, when Charles Gerard Conn of Elkhart, Indiana, started manufacturing the instruments for military bands.

  • The patent act of 1790 established the rules for submitting a patent application. Each application had to be submitted with specifications, a patent drawing, and if possible a model of the invention. Eventually, models were no longer required.

    The National Archives holds nearly three million patent case files from 1836-1956.
