Writing History & Mysteries

When I'm not delving into historical research, I'm planning a character's demise.

O is for Milo H. OLIN, Inventor

Milo H. Olin is one of Wyoming County, NY's many inventors.
WINDSHIELD WIPING AND CLEANING APPARATUS 
Milo H. Olin, Perry, N. Y.
Application July 25, 1950, Serial No. 175,739

A wind shield wiper mechanism which can be controlled by a foot pedal, and which does not require the operator of the vehicle to remove his hands from the vehicle for starting the Windshield wiping operation. The apparatus is for wiping a windshield and for applying a cleaning liquid thereto which is so constructed that both operations are controlled by a single foot pedal.

The apparatus for wiping and cleaning a windshield which the driver can operate wholly with his foot, and which does not require him to remove either hand from the steering wheel. The only hand operation required is to stop the movement of the wipers by pulling on the knob 90. Furthermore, it will be seen that with the apparatus the cleaning liquid is delivered onto the windshield at its top.
