Famous for inventing Tupperware plastic storage containers, he established the Tupperware Plastics Company and began selling his products in the late 1930s.
After studying at Rhode Island's Bryant University, he started a landscaping company that ultimately went bankrupt as a result of the Great Depression. He invented his famous Tupperware product while working for the DuPont Chemical Company.
"Tupperware parties," in which Tupper's products are informally sold, were the brainchild of Tupper's one-time Business partner Brownie Wise.
He and Teflon developer Roy Plunkett are both notable for their revolutionary plastics inventions.
