From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Floyd G. Paxton (March 7, 1918 – December 10, 1975[1]) was a manufacturer of ballbearings during World War II,[2] and later inventor of the bread clip, a notched plastic tag used for sealing bags of bread worldwide.[3]

Bread clip

Paxton conceived the notion of the bread clip when he was flying in 1952; this resulted later in him founding the company Kwik Lok, in Yakima, Washington.[4]

Other pursuits

Paxton was best known in the state of Washington for his very conservative political views. During the 1960s he was national president of the John Birch Society.[2] He made four unsuccessful runs for Congress. He founded a conservative newspaper, The Yakima Eagle, which did not attract a subscriber base and soon folded. Paxton and his wife, Grace, had a running battle with the Internal Revenue Service over a family trust set up to avoid taxation, resulting in years of litigation and appeals with the IRS—with the Paxtons ultimately losing. [5] He died of a heart attack in December 1975 at the age of 57.[2] He left a son, Jerre Paxton, who became a leading figure in the state's horse-racing community.[6]
