Laszlo Biro

Laszlo Jozsef Biro was the inventor of the modern ballpoint pen.

In 1943 the brothers moved to Argentina and on June 10 filed another patent, and formed Biro Pens of Argentina . This new design was licensed by the British, who produced ballpoint pens for Royal Air Force aircrew, who found they worked much better than fountain pens at high altitude.

In 1950 Marcel Bich bought the patent from Biro for the pen, which soon became the main product of his Bic company.
