••• When Dr. L. J. Hortin, Ph.D. headlined his first of many magazine articles in 1931, "BIRTHPLACE of Radio" -- which featured the grandfather of Troy Cory-Stubblefield, the inventor and patent owner of the Wireless Telephone™ -- how did Hortin know in 1930, that Nathan B. Stubblefield's grandson would be sitting next to him some sixty years later, in 1991, at Murray State University - MSU.
••• The 1991 -- MSU-NBS100 sumit was taking place to prepare for the 100th anniversary of the first of several RF wireless broadcast demonstrated by Nathan B. Stubblefield, (NBS) in 1892. Troy was heading the group of educators to prove up Hortin's early day 1930 Wi-Fi research writings, and his 1951 article, "Did He Invent Radio?"
••• The third paragraph in Hortin's "KENTUCKY PROGRESS MAGAZINE - "BIRTHPLACE of Radio," March 1, 1930," reads: "What price glory? Although he undoubtedly gave the world its greatest invention, the radio, he failed to get the honor due him. He wanted glory, for he wrote to his cousin Vernon Stubblefield: "You and I will yet add luster to the Stubblefield name. N.B.S." Now the little tobacco and college town of Murray, Kentucky, is trying to add that luster to his name by erecting in his memory a marker near the ruins of his old home. The tardy memorial will be dedicated March 28, 1930, exactly two years after his death."

First Tests Without Ground Wires
••• It was a few days after the 1991 MSU- NBS100 event, when Dr. Hortin, Troy and the TCS TV staff were filming the front of the WNBS radio station when one of the crew members questioned Hortin, "Did He Really Invent Radio?" Hortin, in a cranky voice said, "the forklore stops here son. See the radio stations call letters --WNBS? . . . well the "NBS" are the initials of Nathan B. Stubblefield, the inventor . . . and, while your at it, see the tall aerial? . . . it grew out of his soil-coil industrial school teleph-on-delgreen antenna experiments in 1892. CLICK FOR MORE ANTENNA STORY
••• When "Nathan B. Stubblefield Forklore Stops Here" creator Dr. L.J Hortin, Ph.D. talked about the way academia regards his craft, during the NBS panel debate, he sounded more like the theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, (March 14, 1879 &endash; April 18, 1955), selling his famed E=mc2 equation, than his old self.
••• The bold journalistic professor he portrayed during his career at MSU was the individual at MSU, that taught his students to carry-on the historical RF wireless broadcasting feats of NBS. It was both Dr. Hortin and and Dr. Ray Mofield, Ph.D. whose teachings jump-started the radio controversary now taking place around the Internet. There's no doubts today, it was NBS who demonstrated, perfected, marketed and patented voice RF transmissions from the late 1880s to 1912, -- using his delgreen antennas.
••• The former Murray State University Journalism Dept. head was convinced that colleges and universities wasn't giving the world of radio television and the Wireless Telephone™ -- serious equal respect, despite the spread of programs, departments and schools focused on the field.
••• In the academic hierarchy, the study of journalism and the users of the E.M.F. and RF forces developed by Stubblefield on his Teléph-on-délgreen acreage, now MSU, to transmit audio and other "moving images" media through space, does not rate at the same level as the law school, or the medical school or the school of agriculture or the school of architecture. It just isn't thought of in the same breath, "which is for me a sacrilege," Hortin said, with the choking force of his own words. MORE ABOUT Teléph-on-délgreen acreage
••• So now Hortin is striking back -- with the help of the grandson of Nathan B. Stubblefield. Hortin spoke at yesterdays MSU-NBS study panel discussing the history of the Wireless Telephone™ invention, backed up by Keith Stubblefield, (Troy Cory), James L. Johnson, Larry Albert, and Dr. Ray Mofield, Ph.D. Hortin refreshed the memories of those in the packed auditorium, as to why Rainey T. Wells, the founder and president of College, sponsored the 1931 groundbreaking ceremony.
••• The memorial pictured, highlights Stubblefield's contributions to MSU, then named, Murray State Teachers College, with his Wireless Telephone™ legacy. The 85 acres where NBS invented and developed the RF radio wave device from 1885 to 1908, was called Teleph-on-delgreen. Hortin admitted that the NBS Industrial School was a precursor to the University, and to show due respect to the inventor, a building should be named in his honor.
••• During the RF wireless experimental days of 1890 to 1906, the various plots of damp green hotspots within Teleph-on-delgreen acreage, were the locations where the secrets of the NBS soil-coil mixtures were at one time buried. The induction soil-coil-aerials used to transmit RF voice signals from one delgreen wireless telephone aerial hotspot to another, were powered by his induction battery coils he invented in 1885. The Earth Battery patent was applied for in 1896, and patent granted in 1898. CLICK FOR MORE Soil-Coil STORY.
••• One of the main changes the 1992 NBS Year will bring will be a new, 10,000-square-foot building complex to house the NBS - TeleCom Museum across the court house.
••• The ceremony brought together MUS officials, faculty, students and the NBS family members and TCS Show performers, Tina Kincaid, Angelica Bridges, Josie Cory and Troy Cory-Stubblefield, was headed by Hollywood publicists, Chris Harris and Dino DeLorean. It also put a spotlight on the renaming of an existing school to the School of NBS Arts & Science Bldg., a change dictated by Hortin to signal the role that Nathan B. Stubblefield played in moving RF signals through space.
••• Troy added, "that those RF signals surrounded by land-lines and poles, are more fully described in his grandfather's patent drawings of 1906. "They reflect the images used in today's schools of journalism, TV, interactive media or elsewhere. I predict that the term, Wireless Telephone™ will play a more important role in the future of modern day life . . . than the word, 'Radio'".
••• The proposed School of NBS Arts & Science Bldg. and NBS museum, provided by the NBS Family Foundation, will not only propel MSU's media journalism programs, but will also put the world of Radio/TV "on notice that this is an important RF discipline and should be taken seriously."

••• Hortin's "Broadcast Magazine" article, published 41 years earlier, spotlighted the seriously of maintaining RF antenna disciplines. Radio Frequencies and the electromagnetic force, E.M.F. to power wireless voice transmitters, were established by Stubblefield on the dates NBS filed for his 1898, E.M.F. battery, and his 1908 Wireless Telephone™ copyrights, trademark and patent grants." The first paragraph in Hortin's 1951 -- points this out:
••• WAY DOWN in the tip of Kentucky you'll hear on your radio every hour or so: "This is Station WNBS Murray, Ky., Birthplace of Radio."
••• If you're a stranger in those parts, you'll smile indulgently and reflect that it's probably a tall tale told by an over-bourbonized Kentuckian . . . "What about Marconi, DeForest, Fessenden, Preece, Poulsen, Fleming, and all the others . . . (what did they do)?" - "Oh, we've heard about some of them. Of course, they deserve a lot of credit . . . but . . .
••• Mr. Stubblefield, born in Murray, Ky., while still in his teens, read and studied everything available on the new science of electricity. When Alexander Graham Bell phoned Tom Watson on March 10, 1876, "Come here, Watson; I want you," Mr. Stubblefield was experimenting with "vibrating" (non-electric), communication devices, (varnished banjo strings), and other "queer contraptions." (At the age of 18, while apprenticing for law, he attended a Dolbear lecture in Bethany, No. Carolina).
••• The Murray Weekly News carried this news item on March 10, 1887: "Charley Hamlin has his telephone in fine working order from his store to his home. It is the Nathan Stubblefield patent and it was the best I have ever talked through."
••• Mr. Stubblefield's vibrating telephone was patented Feb. 21, 1888 -- Patent No. 378,183. His "acoustic telephone" was a local success. About 1890 he developed a "Bell telegraph."
••• Scientists had known for a long time, of course, that electricity could jump across gaps of intervening space. But just when or how this young Kentucky inventor made the first private discovery of the ability to transmit sounds by wireless will perhaps never be known. Evidence points to the period of 1890-1892. MORE ABOUT TELEPHONE PATENT - LOCHTE.
••• He did tell a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter in January 1902: "I have been working for this 10 or 12 years, long before I heard of Marconi's efforts or the efforts of others to solve the problem of transmission of messages through space without wires.... This solution is not the result of an inspiration or the work of a minute. It is the climax of years."   
"No Electricity - No Aerials - No ground wires."
••• Mr. Stubblefield's first crude experiments "were made without ground wires." He said the messages were first sent "by means of a cumbersome and incomplete machine through a brick wall and several other walls of lath and plaster without wires of any description." He called his first machine the "wireless telephone" as the word "radio" or "radio-telephony" was not then in use.
••• But what about Marconi? Mr. Stubblefield's proponents have a rather simple answer. In the first place, in 1890 Marconi was only 15 years of age, since he was born April 17, 1875. Mr. Stubblefield was 30 and had read and studied practically all books and magazines available on the subject.
••• In the second place, telegraphy is different is different from telephony. Hence wireless telegraphy and wireless telephony are different inventions. Telephony has to do with transmission of sound, while telegraphy does not. The radio of today is understood primarily to refer to the transmission and reception of sound.
••• In a book copyrighted by Trumbull White in 1902, entitled our Wonderful Progress, there are separate articles on Messrs. Marconi and Stubblefield. This book gives the date of Marconi's success in wireless telegraphy (not telephony) as 1899, but adds: "He (Marconi) had not reached his majority when the idea of telegraphy without wires began to interest him and he decided upon it as his special field of labor..." He would have reached his "majority" in 1896; hence he probably, according to this book, started working on it about 1895.
••• In this same book (a copy is on file in the Library of Congress) is an article on "Telephoning Without Wires." The article says flatly (p. 297): "The inventor is Nathan Stubblefield."
••• Several close friends of Mr. Stubblefield have testified that they were given private demonstrations of the "wireless telephone" as early as 1892. They were convinced, moreover, that he doubtlessly had achieved success privately even before that date.
••• Dr. Rainey T. Wells, former general counsel for the Woodmen of the World and founder of Murray State College, testified before a FCC Commissioner in Murray in 1917 that he had personally heard Mr. Stubblefield demonstrate his "wireless telephone" as early as 1892.


EMW03 • NBS Coils used with an NBS Antenna connected to several NBS Cells buried in our Teleph-on-delgreen soil/coil hotspot Wireless Telephone™, you can literally "TELEPHONE THROUGH THE GROUND" to transmit your voice message into space.


••• What did this early invention look like? What was its secret, which Mr. Stubblefield so persistently guarded ? ••• All who saw the early sets (he made several) tell of mysterious boxes, batteries, coils, nickel-topped steel rods, transmitters and receivers.
••• Mr. Stubblefield manufactured his own batteries. One type was later patented March 8, 1908, No. 600,457. This battery he later described as being "the bed rock of all my scientific research in raidio (his spelling) today."
••• The portable radio is a comparatively recent development, but let Dr. Mason tell about the first portable radio (wireless telephone) he saw about 1892:
••• "One day he (Mr. Stubblefield) handed me a device in what appeared to be a keg with a handle on it. Carrying out his instructions, I started walking down the lane with the keg. From it I could hear distinctly his voice and a harmonica which he was broadcasting to me. Time and again I heard similar demonstrations. These were several years before Marconi made his announcement about wireless telegraphy. CLICK FOR MORE STORY.

Albert Einstein (German pronunciation (help·info)) (March 14, 1879 &endash; April 18, 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest physicists of all time.[1][2] He played a leading role in formulating the special and general theories of relativity; moreover, he made significant contributions to quantum theory and statistical mechanics. While best known for the Theory of Relativity (and specifically mass-energy equivalence, E=mc?), he was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize for Physics for his explanation of the photoelectric effect in 1905 (his "wonderful year" or "miraculous year") and "for his services to Theoretical Physics".
