Alice H. Parker, Inventor (?)

Alice H. Parker is, indeed, a rare find. Not much biographical information was found on the Internet about her. Her biography is sometimes confused with that of another Alice Parker, a composer, arranger and conductor.

Alice Parker–the African-American inventor, that is–patented a gas-powered central heating furnace on December 23, 1919 (U.S. Patent 1,325,905).
