Josephine Frances Knight was born in Maine, USA. January 31, 1897.[1]

She married Earle Dickson in 1917. They had two children together: Richard Paul and Robert E.[1]

As a new bride Josephine often cut herself. This provided the inspiration to her husband, Earle, to invent a better bandage. It became the "Band-Aid".
