Henry Woodward

Henry was born into a family in Toronto in Canada with an older sister and then later two younger brothers. When Henry was in medical school(he wanted to be a doctor) he met Mathew Evans' the two became partners and they invented the first incandesant lightbulb. The reason for this was after Henry saw a spark he said, "now if we could keep it going for a long time"But unfortunately, Evans and Woodward did not have enough money to back-up their new as well as people saying "who needs a piece of glowing metal?" invention and so they sold it to Thomas Edison who now gets all the credit for all the hard work of Mathew and Henry.
