A guiding principle of the National Inventors Hall of  

 

Fame located on the campus of the United States  

Patent and Trademark Office 

in Alexandria, VA. The Hall of 

Fame was founded in 1973 by 

the National Council of Patent 

Law Associations and the 

USPTO to celebrate the world’s 

greatest inventors.
Each year, the National Inventors Hall of Fame honors new 

Inductees with events culminating in an annual Induction 

Ceremony at the United States Patent and Trademark Office. 

This year the ceremony will take place on May 21, 2014, 

where they will 

be inducting 15 

inventors whose 

influences have 

spanned over 

a century or 

more. 
Included are

the useful arts.
Construction is wrapping up 

on a physical space set to open  

in May in conjunction with this year’s induction ceremony. A 

space built for visitors to investigate the past, celebrate the present 

and imagine the future while discovering inventors who have 

made immeasurable contributions to our society. More than 500
