Richard Gurley Drew
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.
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.
Richard Gurley Drew is mentioned only in Fallout 3.
