Walter Fredrick Morrison, R. I. P.

Frisbee inventor dies at 90 | | The Star Press: "Walter Fredrick Morrison, the man credited with inventing the Frisbee, has died. He was 90.

Utah House Rep. Kay McIff, an attorney who represented Morrison in a royalties case, says Morrison died at his home in Monroe, Utah, on Tuesday. McIff is from Richfield, Morrison's original hometown.

'That simple little toy has permeated every continent in every country, as many homes have Frisbees as any other device ever invented,' McIff said. 'How would you get through your youth without learning to throw a Frisbee?'"
