Lyda D. Newman

She invented a hairbrush that could be taken apart easily for cleaning. The hairbrush she invented is described in her patent as "simple and durable in construction" and being "very effective when in use". The bristle holder could be removed from the back and be cleaned. Very little information is known about her personal life.
