Invention of the Seatbelt

Who is this gentleman? Why is he important in the automotive world?
This is Dr. C Hunter Shelden. He was a neurologist that was born in Minneapolis, MN in 1907. Dr. Shelden, as well as other neurologists, began to study trauma from head injuries. This piqued his interest in creating a safer experience while driving a car.
In 1955 he introduced a retractable seatbelt that would help prevent injuries from automobile accidents. By 1968 the three-point retractable seatbelt was required and installed in automobiles across the U.S.
Thank you, Dr. Shelden, for inventing the seatbelt!
This outstanding neurologist went on to develop other safety features for cars. If you would like to read more about Dr. Shelden, click on this link:
