Did Garrett Morgan make the gas mask?

Just as it is with Thomas Edison and the light bulb, Garrett Morgan was one of many that helped to shape and perfect today's gas mask. Morgan's device was patented as a "safety hood and smoke protector" and was designed to keep firefighters safe during risky rescue attempts. It had sponges in it that when moistened with water would filter out soot from the smoke in the air during a fire. It was never intended to keep the wearer safe from say a chemical or gas leak. Those masks came about a few years after Morgan's.

What inspired Garrett Morgan to invent the traffic light and gas mask?

He invented the traffic light after seeing a carriage accident at a four-way crossing.

He invented the gas mask (called a Breathing Device) as he saw the need for a system that would allow people to work in dangerous atmospheres. After a tunnel explosion at the Cleveland Waterworks below Lake Eyrie, Morgan walked into the tunnel wearing his gas mask and carried workers out on his back, saving their lives. He was awarded the Carnegie Medal and a Medal of Bravery from the city. His device saved thousands of soldiers from dying from chlorine gas in the trenches of World War 1.
