    László József Bíró (Hungarian: Bíró László József[1]; Spanish: Ladislao José Biro[2]) (September 29, 1899 – November 24, 1985) was the inventor of the modern ballpoint pen[3].

    Bíró (Hungarian pronunciation: [?bi?ro?]) was born in Budapest,Hungary[1] in 1899. He presented the first production of the ball pen at the Budapest International Fair in 1931.

    The wording, 'modern ballpoint pen,' implies that there is an older type ballpoint pen; however, I can't trace one.  There were several earlier inventions and patents, even as far back as Galileo, but none were efficient.
