The Flourescent Lamp

The Flourescent Lamp

This was invented by Agapito Flores (1879-1943). Mr. Flores was born in Guiguinto, Bulacan, Philippines. He showed President Quezon his invention but was saddened that the President did not know what to do with it then. Fortunately, a French guest at the Malacanang Palace made arrangements to send him to Paris with the help of the French government. It was in Paris where he was given a patent for his invention. General Electric Co. in the U.S. bought his work and the rest is history. Source:http://www.pipol.schoolreference.com/agapitoflores.htm
