It’s A Wrap


Vesta Oral Stoudt (April 13, 1891 – May 9, 1966) was the woman who had the seminal idea for duct tape. (Originally named Duck tape). Stoudt worked at the Green River Ordnance Plant in Dixon, Illinois packing ammunition boxes. … Her idea was to seal boxes with a waterproof, tearable cloth tape which she created and tested at her job.

Once dapper black box

Assaulted on back road, red

Flag bent, loose mail door 

Dangling by twisted earlobe.

MacGyvered with gray duck tape.
