Richard Gurley Drew (June 22, 1899 – December 14, 1980) was an American inventor who worked for Johnson and Johnson, Permacel Co., and 3M in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he invented both masking and cellophane tape.

Background[edit | edit source]

This often overlooked inventor had his portrait, among other overlooked American inventors Carl C. Magee‎‎, James Ritty, and Mary Anderson in a gallery at the Museum of Technology in 2077. Unfortunately the gallery has since been reduced to the frames and a placard by 2277.[1]
