"Foster Grant was an American plastics molding and manufacturing company specializing in eyewear. Originally founded in 1919 by Sam Foster to produce women's hair accessories, the first pair of eyewear sold in 1929 at Woolworth in Atlantic City. In 1934, Foster Grant became the first American company to adopt injection molding. Their famous 1960s advertising campaign, "Who's Behind These Home Grants", made it a household word. Foster Grant's original molding focused on making a variety of sunglass frames with glass.In the early 1970s, Foster Grant introduced molded acrylic lenses and later developed silicone hard coatings to protect lenses from scratches.
