The  ShadesOfGreatness.com  Mission
Inventions have helped our society achieve the greatness it enjoys today, yet it is not always easy to tell every inventor’s story. Many times, the names and achievements of little-known inventors are sacrificed for the sake of time, space and cost. ShadesOfGreatness.com is dedicated to honoring great inventors, but we place even more emphasis on honoring the unsung heroes who have helped improve our lives through invention. Most of these unsung heroes lived and invented during the mid- to late 1800’s and early 1900’s, and succeeded despite incredible odds. ShadesOfGreatness.com inspires and encourages today’s rising inventors by sharing the biographies, hopes, dreams, fears and challenges of people just like them
ShadesOfGreatnees.com was established in late 2003 by another unsung hero: Rita L. Hubbard. Rita is a prolific writer and inventor, and former teacher of both the gifted and the academically challenged.
ShadesOfGreatness.com’s goal is to provide an easily accessible forum for inventors the world over so that they can gather, share ideas, or simply chat about what is happening in their own creative worlds. After all, inventors make the world easier for us, so why shouldn’t ShadesOfGreatness.com make the world easier for them.
