I am looking for a means to confirm that Frederick Huston Evans was the or an inventor of dental bur-making machinery. I found the following in the Who's Who of Engineers 1922-23:

Evans, Frederick Huston. Ransom & Randolph Co.; res 1825 Lawrence Av., Toledo O.

Mech. Engr; b. Poplar Plains, Ky, March 8, 1881; s. Wm Dupuy and Sarah Amanda (Reeves) Evans; B.M.E. 1903, M.E. 1906, Ky State Univ; Tau Beta Phi; M. Ironton O., 1908, Mary Rojier Warfuel; one dau., Mary Rojier. Designer Ironton Engine Co. 1903-1904; instr in eng. supt of vocational courses; dean Coll. of Industrial Science Toledo (Ohio) Univ., 1916-18; chief engr, Randsom & Randolph Co,. Toledo, O., 1919-1920, and since 1921. Spcecialized on work in development of U. S. A. Vocational Schools. Inventor of Denal Bur-making machinery.

I have found his text book but can find no further information on him being an inventor of dental bur-making machinery. I was able to fint that Ransom & Randolph Co is/was involved in making equipment for the dental industry.

Thank you in advance.
