American Hero Seth Boyden (1788-1870)

Born in Foxboro, Massachusetts, Boyden worked as a watchmaker in his younger days. After moving to Newark, New Jersey, he spread his wings of invention and demonstrated his ability to improve things. Boyden perfected the process for making patent leather, created malleable iron, invented a nail-making machine, and built his own steamboat. He is also credited with inventing a cut off switch for steam engines as well as a method for producing zinc from ore. Several sources state that Boyden made the first American "daguerreotype" (a method of photography using plates). He rarely patented his inventions and preferred to take individual contracts and to build and sell off businesses. In the final years of his life, living in Hilton, New Jersey, Boyden developed a hybrid strawberry known as the Hilton strawberry. At the time of his death, he told his friends that even at that time, he had enough experiments on hand to last two whole lifetimes.
