Frisbee Inventor Dead at 90 [Death]

Walter Frederick Morrison, the inventor of the Frisbee, died this week at home in Utah. Morrison patented the world's first commercially produced plastic flying disc in 1948, and sold the concept to Wham-O in 1955. (He'd also been a prisoner of war in Stalag 13 during World War II, after his P-47 Thunderbolt was shot down.)
