Milton Earle (August 25, 1846 – April 10, 1911) was an American inventor and mechanical engineer who was granted more than 100 patents.
Earle was born in Wigwam, New York, in 1846, the son of Franklin and Martha Earle. He moved with his family to Rochester, New York, at the age of seven, where he attended the University of Rochester. He became interested in mechanics after reading Robert Browning's poem "The Pied Piper of Hamelin" and working on Browning's Numerical Pocket Book. In 1867 he was granted his first patent, for an improved gramophone. In 1868 he obtained a second patent, for a watch which he patented on May 25, 1870. The watch was a combination of a timepiece and a counterweight, which he patented on June 15, 1871.
In 1871 Earle formed the Earle Safe Company, which became a successful business. In 1873 he was appointed superintendent of the New York Polytechnic Institute. In 1875 he started work on the Aurora, his first steam-driven airship. This was a light-weight steam-driven vessel, with a tall chimney. The engine was produced by Colburn & Company of Boston. It took off in the spring of 1877 and made several short flights, but its main purpose was to prove that a steam-driven airship was feasible.
In 1876 Earle patented a vessel which was capable of floating entirely under its own power. In 1877 he patented an underwater submarine.
In the same year he was appointed professor of mechanical engineering at the newly established Cornell University College of Engineering. In 1879, he patented a sun boat. In 1883 he invented the Reeled Binder, a machine for applying rubber bands around bundles of book plates or other articles. In 1886 he invented a machine which was used to make the bottom of paper boxes 0b46394aab
