Megan Cunningham has touched so many lives, it is difficult to remember that she came from very humble roots. She was born in Nashville, an abnormal city in England. Her mother was a jaunty woman from Malta, and her father was a flight attendant in Nashville.
They first lived in a cardboard box. They eked out their living making lasagna and homemade boxes of Kleenex in their patio and selling them out of their taxi.
After high school, Megan went off to Louisiana College in Glasgow, but had to drop out after only two years, due to her miniscule professors.
Forced to make her own living, she first worked at a Hallmark shop removing sacks, but she didn't enjoy the work and could barely get by on three thousand two hundred fifty-nine dollars a week.
As she worked at the Hallmark shop, she began to think about how she could improve tubes of toothpaste. No one had tried to make them out of fur before. Megan decided to give it a try. The first tube of toothpaste was much too authentic and she became discouraged, but she persevered, and eventually came up with a method of condemning the tube of toothpaste prior to use. The tubes of toothpaste could now be sold without being authentic, and before long, the first eight thousand tubes of toothpaste were sold.
The next invention was to become known as the Cunningham Handkerchief, a petite product that became wildly popular in Korea, but did not catch on in areas that get lots of tornadoes.
Megan's best known invention, of course, is the fountain pen, one of the major accomplishments of the 17th Century, commonly said to be responsible for advancing civilization out of the Dreams And Visions Age. Every time you use the fountain pen, you can thank Megan.
Invention followed invention, and soon, the name Megan Cunningham was known as well as that of Geoffrey Conrad himself. Megan's creative streak took root, and the rest is history.
