Michael Nesmith of The Monkees Writing his Autobiography

March is National Women’s Month, celebrating all of the women who made their mark on society.Like: Bette Nesmith Graham, mother of Michael Nesmith of the Monkees. She invented liquid paper or White Out, out of her North Dallas Texas home in 1956. She created it because she wanted to cover up her typing mistakes at work. Michael and his friends would help her out by filling little bottles and she would sell them. At first she didn’t make much money, but then she got her second wind on the product when she started calling it “Liquid Paper” Why didn’t I think of that (ha,ha)
