Stuart W. Cramer
Stuart Warren Cramer (March 31, 1868 – July 2, 1940) was an American engineer and contractor. He was the founder of Cramerton, NC and was involved in the textiles and air conditioning industries, as well as being a founding partner in Duke Power.
In a May 1906 speech in Asheville, NC, before the American Cotton Manufacturers Association, Cramer coined the term air conditioning. Cramer's connection to air conditioning was connected with his work in the textile industry. Over the course of his career he acquired more than 60 patents for the humidity control and ventilating equipment he developed for cotton mills across the South.
