Inventor of the Frisbee dies at age 90

photo from the Los Angeles Times

Fredrick Morrison inventor of the flying disc known as the "Frisbee" passes away at age 90. Next time you throw your dog, your kids, or your best friend that flying disc give a little love to ol' Fredrick from the Wham-O Corporation for making your day at the beach a little more interesting. I once visited the Wham-O headquarters in the San Gabriel Valley and saw all the greats....the SuperBall, the Hula-Hoop, the Slip N' Slide and the first prototype Frisbee. Mr Morrison was also an alumni of John Marshall HS.
