Famous Person:

Philo T. Farnsworth

Philo T. Farnsworth had a vision: television. He was born August 19, 1906 in Beaver, Utah, and just 17 years later, while still in high school, he came up with the basic ideas for creating television. He perfected his dream while attending Brigham and Young University as he further delved into the idea of picture transmission. In 1926, when he was only 20 years old, he co-founded Crocker Research Laboratories, which later became Farnsworth Television, Inc. in 1929. He invented many devices for converting an optical image into an electrical signal, he also invented CRTs, electrical scanners, and photoelectric materials, as well as contributing to advances in radar, vacuum tubes, and the generation of electrical energy by atomic fusion.
