What is a clipboard?

Not to be confused with computer clipboards, which is a form of cut, copy and pasting information from and to a document, a tangible clipboard is a thin, strong piece of panel made of varying materials such as metal, wood, or plastic with a clip at the top for holding paper in place. Oftentimes it is held in one hand while writing on it with the other hand. It is especially useful when tables or other writing surfaces are unavailable such as on construction job sites and outdoor areas.

What the different types of clipboards?

There are different variations of clipboards. One of the most common type of clipboard is manufactured of thin, rigid wooden board with a metal clip at the top to hold papers. They can also be made of metal such as aluminum or of plastics such as PVC, polypropylene, high-impact polystyrene and a material called Foamex. Nowadays you can even buy a transparent clipboard. Clipboards can come in a more traditional style with a sturdy single board or folding clipboards which offer additional benefits such as storage. Storage clipboards offer the user a place to carry additional pens, papers, calculators, and even have pockets for keeping such items safe incorporated into the clipboard with hinges that connect two or more boards together.

Who invented the clipboard?

According to whoinventedfirst.com, American George Henry Hohnsbeen invented the clipboard or memorandum file in 1908. Also known as Henry George Hohnsbeen, he was born in 1879 in Davenport, Iowa to the son of German immigrants Ludwig Hohnsbeen and Wilhelmine Wunder. Inheriting his mechanical abilities from his father, grandfather and uncles, Hohnsbeen became an engineer at age 20, then became a travel agent in Minneapolis. Hohnsbeen began to patent a number of inventions through the upcoming years of his life. Hohnsbeen developed and patented improvements to oil-fueled signaling lanterns that were used as danger signals to warn the public of obstructions. He also patented an early version of a liquid soap dispenser in 1919 and invented an attachment to the front of the electric fan that would heat the air circulating from it that was patented in 1921. Hohnsbeen’s inventions and improvements to various devices were mainly from the years 1908 through to about 1921, but his legacy will live on forever in clipboards around the world.

When was the clipboard invented?

As previously mentioned, George Henry Hohnsbeen is said to have officially invented the clipboard at around 1908. Yet the earlier forms of the clipboard were called board clips. These were said to have been patented as early as 1870-1871. The Shannon Arch File, also related to the clipboard, was developed around the year 1877.

Who uses clipboards?

Practically every line of work will benefit from the use of a clipboard. Those in the field of medicine, construction, retail and education, in addition to sports coaches, police officers and even families will all find useful reasons to utilize a clipboard. If you really want to think outside the box and are the type of person who likes to decorate with “found” items, use a clipboard for displaying to-go food menus in the kitchen. Hang up a clipboard and drape pretty necklaces on top of a pretty fabric with the clip in your closet or hang one by your desk for unpaid bills or other reminders clipped to it. Use them as replacements to frames for artwork. The possibilities are boundless!
