Friction Matches Were
Invention of Druggist
The friction match was invented
in 1827 by John Walker, a druggist
living at Stockton-on-Tees in Dur
ham, England. His matches were
made of a compound of chlorate
of potash and sugar mixed with
powdered gum arabic to make it
adhesive when applied to a splinter
of wood. They were ignited by
drawing them rapidly and under
considerable pressure through a
piece of folded sandpaper. Such
matches were first sold in London
under the name of lucifers. Luci
fer, often used as a general name
for matches, is one of the names of
Satan and is derived from Latin
•Tux,” (light), and “fero," (to
An Englishman flamed Isaac Hol
den made crude sulphur matches
about <1833. A French physician
and chemist named Saugrain, who
settled in St. Louis about 1800,
showed William Clark and Meri
wether Lewis how to make matches
.before they started on their long
journey up the Missouri river in
1804. The Frenchman dipped sul
phur-tipped splinters of wood into
phosphorus and produced flames
without difficulty. He then sealed
a supply of phosphorus in tin boxes
for safety and showed the explor
ers how to make their own sulphur-
tipped sticks. These, of course,
were not true friction matches.
