Marion was an American Inventor and Entrepreneur she is best known for her invention the disposable diaper. After WWII she had been tired of her daughter messing the bed and getting her clothing dirty from the previous diaper. So Donovan took cloth and a shower curtain to make a water proof diaper. Instead of using the original safety pins she replaced them with snaps.
She was given four patents for the diaper cover in 1949 she attempted to sell what she called the boater to several different manufactures. She then also began selling her items at Saks Fifth Avenue. Just two years later her company and her patents were sold for $1,000,000 to the Keko Corporation. From 1951-1996 she was granted 20 patents not just for diapers but for things such as women's related essentials, writing sheet combinations, and hosiery clamp.
