2 More Patents

Ink drawing of Wade Dickinson – Copyright 1986 by Eleanor Creekmore Dickinson

In the 2011 Katysblog entry called On His Own Terms, written the day after my father died, I included a list of dozens of his U.S. patents. I just got a letter for Wade Dickinson from a company trying to sell plaques for his new patents. A quick search of the US Patent and Trademark Office website told me that two more of my father’s patents have just issued:

  • 8,256,992 Underground sequestration system and method
  • 8,256,991 Engineered, scalable underground storage system and method

A pleasant surprise.

The letter offers a lifetime guarantee for the patent award plaque – what does that mean when addressed to someone who is already dead?
