Richard Buckminster Fuller (July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983), an acknowledged polymath, was perhaps most famous for his invention and development of geodesic domes. He invented numerous other machines and devices, often relying on his insights gained from his geometric understanding of the way forces are distributed.

He had twenty-eight US patents. As a writer Fuller published more than 30 books. He contributed to ecological thought with his book Spaceship Earth and was widely sought after as a speaker.

President Reagan awarded Fuller the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Among his many awards and honorary doctorates, Fuller was awarded The Lincoln Academy of Illinois Order of Lincoln in the area of The Arts in 1967.
