Willis Haviland Carrier was an American engineer and inventor who is widely regarded as the "Father of Air Conditioning." He was born on November 26, 1876, in Angola, New York, and passed away on October 7, 1950, in New York City.

Carrier's most significant contribution to the world was the invention of modern air conditioning, which revolutionized how we live and work. His invention addressed the problem of humidity affecting the quality of industrial processes, particularly in the printing industry. In 1902, while working for the Buffalo Forge Company, Carrier designed the first system that controlled temperature, humidity, and air circulation within a printing plant. This invention marked the birth of the first air conditioning system.

In 1915, Willis Carrier and several other engineers formed the Carrier Engineering Corporation (now known as Carrier Corporation), which focused on developing and improving air conditioning systems.
