In his book, "Built to Last," Jim Collins describes how 3M employee Art Fry invented the Post-It Note:

"One day in 1974, while I was singing in the church choir, I had one of those creative moments. To make it easier to find the songs we were going to sing at each Sunday’s service, I used to mark the places with little slips of paper (but they would flutter out at just the wrong time, leaving me frantic). I thought, 'Gee, if I had a little adhesive on these bookmarks, that would be just the ticket," so I decided to check into...Spence Silver’s adhesive."

[Jim Collins, "Built to Last - Successful Habits of Visionary Companies," (Harper Business Books: New York, 1994), 150.]
