It was one of the deadliest volcanic eruptions ever.

1902 - At the age of 23 years old, Nellie was alive when the modern air conditioner was invented by Willis H. Carrier. The company that he worked for needed to find a way to control humidity and by solving this problem, Carrier created a system that could be used for cooling the rooms of a house. The Sun Belt thanks him!
