One of his many inventions was the continuous mining machine, which revolutionized coal mining. Because of that, he was cited by Time-Life Books as one of the 250 greatest inventors in history.  He invented a non-flammable dry cleaning process, sugar beet piling equipment, the continuous coal mining machine, the first commercially successful continuous diffuser for sugar beets, the first modern continuous cane sugar diffuser, the continuous centrifugal cone press and the coal drier. 

He was also a philanthropist who endowed scholarships at Brigham Young University, Provo, and the University of Utah, Salt Lake City.
