This Day in Pop Culture for July 10

Wyoming joined the United States on July 10, 1890.

Wyoming Joins the United States

The Crow, Arapaho, Lakota and Shoshone tribes were some of the original inhabitants of the area of land that we now know as Wyoming. The southwestern part of the state was considered Mexican territory until was ceded to the United States in 1848 at the end of the Mexican-American War. The state got its name in 1865 and was named after the Wyoming Valley in Pennsylvania. Wyoming joined the United States on this day in 1890. The state is the tenth largest but is also the least populated in the country. With an estimate of 586,107 people in 2015, the state’s population is less than 31 of the largest U.S. cities. This is due mostly to the fact that two-thirds of the state is covered with mountain ranges. Wyoming is home to both Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks.

Aaron S. Lupin, inventor of Reddi-Wip passed away on July 10, 1999.

Inventor of Reddi-Wip Dies

On this day in 1999, Aaron S. “Bunny” Lapin, the inventor of pressure-can whipped cream, passed away. Initially a clothing salesman, Lapin created a concoction of light cream and vegetable oil, known as Sta-Whip, as a whipped cream substitute during the World War II food rationing. His next invention was a refillable aerating gun for bakeries called the Fount-Wip. In 1946, Crown Cork and Seal Co. created the Spra-tainer aerosol spray canister. Lapin bought the product, filled it with real cream, no oil and Reddi-Wip was born and delivered to homes in St. Louis. By 1954 the product could be purchased in every state.
