Who invented spandex?

After many years of research, Joseph C. Shivers, a scientist working at DuPont, created Lycra or what we know as spandex. Since it’s birth in 1959, the fiber has been added to a variety of clothing, most especially performance/gym wear.

Needless to say, he has easily been more popular in my books than the dude that invented the alarm clock, whom we shall leave unnamed.
