Happy Birthday, Barcode, brought to you by Drexel alumni

Wonder why Google's homepage doodle featured a barcode today?  October 7 is the anniversary of the first patent for a barcode, awarded to Drexel alumni Bernard Silver '47 and Norman Joseph Woodland '47.

See their patent for a Classifying Apparatus And Method on Google patents.

For more information about N.J Woodland, see this article from the May 8, 2000 Hagerty Library newsletter (pdf).

Thanks to John Wiggins for the tip.
