Sarah Marshall Biography:

Boone was a rarity during her time, a female African American inventor. In her patent application, she wrote the intent behind her creation was “to make a low-cost, easy, handy and impressive apparatus, specially adapted to be utilized in ironing the sleeves and bodies of women’ garments.” Prior to that particular time, most folks ironed utilizing a plank of wood rested across a couple of seats or tables. She was living in New Haven, Connecticut, when her patent was given in 1892. She died in 1900.
