National Medal Winner
Stookey, Stanley Donald, National Medal of Technology, 1994
A piece of Corning Ware because it may last 1,000 years and is in most American homes.
"...let me humbly suggest including a piece of Corning Ware, my invention...Corning Ware has two things to recommend it: One, it is a product used in almost every home; and two, it will last a millennium. Pieces have been found unharmed in houses that have burned down."
