Inventor. Maryland native William Painter invented the crown cork sealing system for bottle topping. Painter patented his invention in 1892 which was widely credited with the increase of home sales for beer. In the same year, he founded Crown, Cork and Seal which later evolved into Crown Holdings Inc., a Fortune 500 company. He held over 80 patents for his inventions including those for the home bottle opener, and automatic machinery to crown bottles.  (bio by: Kelt Smith)
