Woodard, Emhardt Celebrates National Inventors’ Day

In 1979, President Jimmy Carter declared February 11 as National Inventors’ Day to celebrate the United States patent system and the role played by inventors in promoting technological progress. February 11 is a significant choice for the date of National Inventors’ Day, as it is the birthday of Thomas Edison, the inventor of the first practical light bulb and the owner of more than 1000 United States patents.

In celebration of National Inventors’ Day, Woodard, Emhardt is hosting a National Inventors’ Day Reception, inviting attorneys from around Indianapolis to meet for conversation, cocktails, and appetizers.
