Money has always made the world go around. So here’s a look back at what happened today in Fast Money history.

June 15, 1844: Bankrupt hardware merchant Charles Goodyear patented a process to vulcanize rubber which made it able to withstand extreme heat and cold.

It was more than 50 years later however that the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company that bears his name opened for business selling bicycle tires and horseshoe pads.

By 1916, Goodyear became the world’s largest tire company, a decade after it began supplying the wheels for Henry Ford’s Model-T.

That’s today in Fast Money history.
