Woods (1856-1910), a prolific African-American inventor, is known to many as "The Black Edison." His dedication to education, perseverance despite numerous obstacles, and professional brilliance make him a role model for Granville T. Woods Scholars. As a black man in the last century, educational opportunities were thin for this accomplished inventor who left school at the age of ten but later studied mechanical engineering in college. By 1880 he had established his own electrical shop and over time sold his inventions to American Bell Telephone Company, General Electric and the Westinghouse Air Brake. In all he patented more than 60 electrical and mechanical inventions and is one of the most influential contributors to the modernization of the American rail system.
