Recognition of Greatness

Garrett A. Morgan's contribution to the modern world is without parallel. From the mundane day to day routine of getting dressed to the life saving efforts of firefighters and rescue workers, Morgan's influence can be felt most anywhere.

Key to the City

With the many hair care products that Morgan created the fashion industry will never be the same. It's with inventions such as the "safety hood" and the traffic signal that countless lives have been saved. For this very reason Morgan was awarded the Carnegie Medal and a Medal of Bravery from the city, and the International Association of Fire Engineers made Morgan an honorary member.
