Walter Hunt was a mechanic and inventor in the 19th century. It's possible that at one time, Brooke dated him.... but thats not why we are bringing his name up today.

See Walter was a pretty handy guy....constantly using his skills to create and improve a variety of household items. In the 1840’s he owed a man $15 and desperately needed to come up with something to pay off his debt. 

He began twisting metal until he created something that we still use today. What did Walter Hunt invent in order to pay off his $15 debt?
