William Coffin ColemanWilliam Coffin Coleman was selling typewriters when he came across a gasoline-fueled lamp that gave off such a bright glow he could actually read by it. He subsequently bought the company that made the lamp, and the Coleman Company is now a world leader in portable camping and other recreational equipment.
Arthur Hoyt ValentineArthur Hoyt Valentine founded a chain of diners housed in small, prefabricated buildings, and then founded his own line of portable, prefabricated buildings known as Valentine Diners, which came with everything necessary to start a restaurant -- the kitchen, counter, stools, lighting and plumbing fixtures, and even a bathroom.
