what did henry brown invent

Report as

Henry Brown invented the first strongbox. It is similar to what we would call a personal safe with a locking system. He was born in 1815. He was an African-American slave. He developed a metal box that could be locked so that burglars could not steal easily. It was a box made of thick metal with locks so that papers and other valuable could be kept in the box.
