TimeLine1930y46w.jpg 1930s - MSU - Telephon-del-green Monument. Since his death, various individuals and groups in Murray, Kentucky have publicized Murray as the Birthplace of Radio, a claim which is not widely recognized, and Stubblefield as the Father of Broadcasting, a claim which has more merit. Loren J. Hortin, Journalism Professor at Murray State, organized his students to investigate Stubblefield's work, leading to the dedication of a monument on campus in 1930. Hortin later said, "Radio is a device that transmits and receives voice over considerable distance without connecting wires. Stubblefield invented, manufactured, and demonstrated such a device and did so before anyone else on the planet." The radio station in Murray, WNBS, used Stubblefield's initials in its call letters. (Lochte) *NBSWiTel™©AFact
1930s - MSU College News, "Unveiling of Stubblefield Marker,"
1930s 0328 - Stubblefield Monument. Inventor Nathan B. Stubblefield Memorial Marker Dedication --Murray State honored Nathan B. Stubblefield with the erection of Headstone Monument. The dedication took place in Murray, Kentucky, on March 28, 1930, where the Wireless Telephone was invented and demonstrated, just across the street from the Teléph-on-délgreen school house. Of the Stubblefield family, only Helen,, Victoria and Oliver, (Troy's father), were on hand at the unveiling. Bernard, Nathan Jr., Pattie and Ada, were no shows. The marker reads, "Here in 1902, Nathan B. Stubblefield, 1860 - 1928, inventor of radio, broadcast and received the human voice by wireless. He made experiments 10 years earlier. The home was 100 feet west. "Rainey T. Wells headed the ceremony.
1930s 0829 - LETTER - 1930: August 30, 1930, from Taylor & Taylor, Attorneys at Law, Little Rock, Arkansas.
••• Dear Mr. Stubblefield:
••• I had a letter some time ago from Mr. Walter C. Sheppard in which he stated that you were having correspondence with your mother, Mrs. Nathan B. Stubblefield, and your sister, Mrs. J. H. White, but they informed me that they have not heard from you. It is their presumption and mine that you are working on the experiments in accordance with your plan as outlined to Mr. Sheppard. I suggest that you communicate with your family in order that they may know what to expect.
••• Mr. Sheppard as well as myself are waiting the outcome of your experiments to accept employment in this matter, but if anything at all is to be done it must be done right away, as the time as you already know is growing short. In other words, there can be no recovery at all after May 12th of next year.
••• Trusting we may hear from you at an early date, I am, Very truly yours, Beloit Taylor. *NBSWiTel™©AFact
1930s - Stubblefield Poem. E. C. McAllister, an Episcopalian clergyman of Miillinocket, ME, and former resident of Paducah, Ky. writes poem on Stubblefield's radio invention.
1930s 0105 - LETTER - 1930: REG. MISSING PATENT, January 5, 1930, From Bernard St. to Ada M. Stubblefield, Little Rock, Ark., (handwritten original)&emdash; Your letter of Dec. 30/29 recd. I made a search of the papers you spoke of, but couldn't find any of the Wireless Telephone Patents. I am enclosing some copies, filing receipts and a photostat copy of the patent as appeared in the Patent Office Gazette. These copy in question may still be in some picture frame with some of Father's effects, still at Uncle Walters. You all write ask him to take another look, and to also look for a diary this is also missing ask Vick if He sent it to her as there is a copy of an important paper in it for her, under date of May 14, 1917. (Referring to 1908 Patent) A photostat copy of a note to that effect is herein enclosed.
••• The fact that the Patent is missing would not in my opinion effect any of our rights in case those were infringements during the life of the Patent or Patents as the case may be. All of the Patents are out of date, that is not in force. Even if those were infringements during the life of the Patents it would be a production proposition, and cost a mint of money to prosecute the matter, even then we would get only a little more than (illegible) as there is a lot of others that held a share in the Invention. B. B. Stubblefield. *NBSWiTel™©AFact
1930s 0209 - LETTER - 1930: February 9, 1930, From Ada Mae Stubblefield to Bernard, (handwritten original)&emdash; Dear son. Haven't heard from you in some time. Will drop you a few lines. I have a cliping [sic] I want to send you it is going the rounds of all the news papers - they are trying to boast that school. There, Rainy Wells is the president of it. Somebody there has those patents and your Father's diary and books - Walter wrote me that he sent you everything he could find . Hope your are well and O K - write soon, Mother. *NBSWiTel™©AFact

1930s - Collins Radio, Cedar Rapids - Single Sideband - Even back in the 1930s, Collins' engineers recognized three requirements necessary to make single sideband practical for general communications use: (1) better frequency stability, (2) smaller and lower cost single sideband filters, and (3) better linear amplifiers. What is the Relevancy of Radio and wireless telephone Patent to the Internet? The wireless telephone transmitters were connected directly into local wired telephone exchanges to wired homes.
1930 - The TRF, Tuned Radio Frequency receiver was still the leader, but many superhet receivers were being made. Interest in Short Wave listening grows. Switches begin to replace plug in coils for changing bands.
1930f - Philco TV. Farnsworth granted patent. Its lawyers, in proceedings claiming interference, sharply questioned Farnsworth for many hours, but failed to break him down. During the early 1930s, Philco became Farnsworth's chief backer.
1930f - Finally, on August 26, 1930 after many gruelling months of legal battles and financial worries (Farnsworth's backers spent over $30,000 on the case), the twenty-four year old Farnsworth was issued patent number 1,773,980 which covered broadly his system of television and reception.
1930f 0826 - PATENT GRANTED: FARNSWORTH TELEVISION PATENT issued August 26, 1930. (Patent Expires August 26, 1947) - Farnsworth received his patent in 1930, when he was twenty-four years old.

1931 - RCA, The Radio Corporation of America markets the "Radiola 80", one of the most famous of all receivers. The first 'midget' sets are sold. The radio building boom has begun to wane as most consumers are now purchasing complete sets, rather than kits. Zenith corporation was founded by a radio amateur with a call sign of 9ZN, and was one of the most successful manufacturers of the era. This 6 volt 'farm radio' was built in the early 1930s based on the tube type and cabinet style.
1931 - Thomas Edison (1847-1931) dies in October with more than 1000 patents to his credit.
1931f - David Sarnoff, president of RCA paid a visit to Farnsworth's San Francisco lab to find out whether Farnsworth and his backers would consider selling the patent, laboratory and Farnsworth's services for $100,000. They were refused outright.
1931f - Philco and Farnsworth Deal. In June, 1931, Farnsworth and his backers entered into a licensing agreement which gave the Philco Company (the largest manufacturer of radios at the time) the licensing rights for television receiver sets. This necessitated a move to Philadelphia for Farnsworth and most of his staff where they occupied a Philco laboratory at the Ontario and C Street plant.
1931m - Marconi began research into the propagation characteristics of still shorter waves, resulting in the opening in 1932 of the world's first microwave radiotelephone link between the Vatican City and the Pope's summer residence at Castel Gandolfo. Two years later at Sestri Levante he demonstrated his microwave radio beacon for ship navigation and in 1935, again in Italy, gave a practical demonstration of the principles of radar, the coming of which he had first foretold in a lecture to the American Institute of Radio Engineers in New York in 1922.
1931s - "Firsts" for the Collection of Boy Wear's "Remember?" E. W. Wells of Charlestown, Ark., born in 1851 in Rock Creek, Kentucky, remembers that Capt. W. J. Stubblefield brought the first mowing machine to Murray in 1871 or 1872.
1931s - The Famed Aviation COLLINS RADIO was formed - M. H. Collins, the brother of A. F. Collins, sold his Cedar Rapids, Collins Farms Company to an east coast insurance company -- using the money to invest in his 23-year-old son's wireless transmission business. Arthur Collins, picked up where his uncle A. Frederick left off in his business dealings with N.B. Stubblefield. The new Collins Family Group, set up a shop at 1620 6th Avenue S.E., the family home of the Collins; and they all began producing transmitters and receiver kits to order -- for the home consumer and aviation entrepreneurs. They later sold out COLLINS RADIO and their sideband business -- to a never disclosed War Department party during World War II, the predecessor of (Rockwell) in California.

1932 - International Telecommunication Union. At the Madrid Conference, the Union decided to combine the International Telegraph Convention of 1865 and the International Radiotelegraph Convention of 1906 to form the International Telecommunication Convention. It was also decided to change the name of the Union to International Telecommunication Union. The new name, which came into effect on 1 January 1934, was chosen to properly reflect the full scope of the Union's responsibilities, which by this time covered all forms of wireline and wireless communication.
1932m - Marconi builds a permanent radiotelegraph connection between the Vatican and Castel Gandolfo.
1932r - Died: Reginald Aubrey Fessenden (1871-1932), in Hamilton, Bermuda. (AC Generator). Christmas Eve 1906, Fessenden and Alexanderson broadcast speech and phonographic music from Fessenden's Brant Rock Station.

••• On the stone lintel acros His grave there contains the paean:
••• "By his genius distant lands converse and men sail unafraid upon the deep."
1932s - Murray, Kentucky. Public threat to close Murray State College as an economy measure ignited the wrath of indignant Callowayans. W. O. McIntyre's column in the Courier-Journal lit the torch when he chronicled that the school was built on a farm that Dr. Rainey T. Wells couldn't sell but peddled to the state, lived in a house he owned in the middle of the campus, and subsequently made himself pres dent to run the school. (It was on Nathan's land where Nathan B. Stubblefield's Industrial School was located, now the campus of MSU.) "The Story of Calloway County," Published by Kerby and Dorothy Jennings.
1932t-1937 - Tesla works on the projects of telegeodynamics and death rays.
1933 - Franklin D. Roosevelt: Thirty-Second U.S. President, 1933-1945. (b. January 30, 1882 in Hyde Park, New York, d. April 12, 1945 in Warm Springs, Georgia). Married to Anna Eleanor Roosevelt.
1933 - The 1933 Glass-Steagall Act enacted by U.S. Congress. The anti-Trust Law breaks up big business. The "House of J.P. Morgan" became three entities: 1) J.P. Morgan and Co. and its bank, J.P.

1933 - Several Phonograph companies start labeling records "not licensed for radio broadcast" as move to protect their alleged property rights
1933af - Fleming was awarded the IRE Medal of Honor in 1933 for "the conspicuous part he played in introducing physical and engineering principles into the radio art." His contributions to electronic communications and radar were of vital importance, but it is certain that he will be chiefly remembered for the invention of the thermionic valve.
1933ar - PATENT - Armstrong's U.S. Patent 1,941,066 "Radio Signaling System," Filed July 30, 1930, Granted December 26, 1933. CLICK TO VIEW PATENT.

1933f - Cathode Tube. While working at Philco, Farnsworth began to develop his "multipactor" tube which had the ability to transmit television impulses and could be used as well as an amplifier, detector, rectifier, and multiplier tube. It was the first "cold cathode" tube and it was hailed by scientists and engineers as a major breakthrough.

1934 to 1964 / CLICK FOR NBS Study "K" TIMELINE

1934 - AT&T inaugurates transpacific telephone service, initially between the U.S. and Japan. Calls travel across the Pacific via radio. The initial capacity is one call at a time at a cost of $39 for the first three minutes.
1934 - Died: George O. Squier (1865-1934). George Owen Squier, was still Chief Signal Officer in the U.S. Army when he was elected to the National Academy of Science in 1919. His invention in 1910 of "multiplexing" allowed telephone wires to carry multiple messages for the first time; the carrier frequency principle involved was later adapted to other types of transmission, including FM radio."
1934 - Died: Marie Curie (1867-1867). Curie was a Polish-French physicist and chemist. She was a pioneer in the early field of radioactivity, later becoming the first two-time Nobel laureate and the only person with Nobel Prizes in two different fields of science (physics in 1903 and chemistry in 1911).
1934 - Afternoon edition of The Wall Street Journal ceases.
1934 - J.P. Morgan Grenfell in London, England, an overseas securities house was formed as required by U.S. 1933 Glass-Steagall Act. 1934 - J.P. Morgan and Co, was formed as required by U.S. 1933 Glass-Steagall Act.
1934 - J.P. Morgan Guaranty Trust Bank, was formed as required by U.S. 1933 Glass-Steagall Act.
1934 - J.P. Morgan Stanley, an investment house, was formed as required by U.S. 1933 Glass-Steagall Act.
1934 - FCC Function: to control and regulate radio frequencies and spectrums. The radio spectrum is the radio frequency (RF) portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. In the United States, regulatory responsibility for the radio spectrum is divided between the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). The FCC, which is an independent regulatory agency, administers spectrum for non-Federal use (i.e., state, local government, commercial, private internal business, and personal use) and the NTIA, which is an operating unit of the Department of Commerce, administers spectrum for Federal use (e.g., use by the Army, the FAA, and the FBI). Within the FCC, the Office of Engineering and Technology (OET) provides advice on technical and policy issues pertaining to spectrum allocation and use.
02 / TimeLine / FCC Created By U.S. Congress
1934 - The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is created by congress. THE COMMUNICATIONS ACT OF 1934. U.S. FCC Communications Policy Legislation. *(See Footnote.) This legislative act remains the cornerstone of American television policy six decades after its initial passage. Though often updated through amendments, and itself based on the pioneering Radio Act of 1927, the 1934 legislation which created the Federal Communications Commission has endured remarkably well through an era of dramatic technical and social change; By 1934 pressure to consolidate all telecommunication regulation for both wired and wireless services prompted new legislation with a broader purpose. By 1996 pressure to deregulate all telecommunication regulation for both wired and wireless services for control of the New Internet Craze, prompted new legislation by the Clinton Administration with a broader purpose.
1934al - Alexanderson was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
1934ar - Armstrong develops his theory to use FM. 'All-Wave' receivers are a hit this year, bringing in radio from foreign broadcasters. WLW increases to a half million Watts of power.
1934d - De Forest Wins patent suit. De Forest vs. Armstrong law Patent suit ends. De Forest won, but the radio industry still credits Smart-Daaf Boy Armstrong with the invention.
1934f - In the summer of 1934, Farnsworth and his men decided to leave Philco and establish their own separate laboratory, while remaining in Philadelphia, which was then the center of the radio industry. They turned their attention towards developing a practical demonstration unit for television.
1934m - Marconi establishes a radiotelegraph link between the Elettra and the radio beacon in Sestri Levante.
1934t - Tesla wrote to consul Jankovic of his homeland. The letter contained the message of gratitude to Mihajlo Pupin who initiated a donation scheme by which American companies could support Tesla. Tesla refused the assistance, and chose to live by a modest pension received from Yugoslavia and to continue researching.
1934 - Mexican artist Diego Rivera, hired to paint a mural for Rockefeller Center, is dismissed after refusing to replace the face of Lenin. Despite protests, his mural will be destroyed less than a year later.
1935ar - Howard Armstrong demonstrates FM. The first metal tubes are released. Over a million auto radios are installed this year.
1935f - Never mind the record says different. In 1935 the courts ruled on Farnsworth's patent, which RCA was contesting as part of Sarnoff's endless campaign of litigation, propaganda and dirty tricks. The decision, upheld on appeal: Farnsworth, not RCA's chief television engineer Vladimir Zworykin, is the father of TV.
1935 - Baird Television Company demonstrates a "new method and transmitting feature film by the Baird '240 line system' at an exhibitors conference in Cardiff, Wales.
1936 - BBC launches the world's first regular television service.
1936 - Most radios sold now employ an AFC circuit - Automatic Frequency Control. 'Automatic Tuning' (push-button) are the years big hit. Approx. 8 million sets are sold this year. 3 out of 4 families have a radio in the home.
1936f - During Farnsworth's German trip, a disastrous fire swept through the Crystal Palace and destroyed all of the Baird equipment which had been based on Farnsworth's work. It was a huge disappointment for the inventor who returned sadly to Philadelphia with a distorted piece of melted glass. This represented all that was left of Farnsworth's dissector tube which would have been used in the camera made ready for the first broadcast.
1936f - TV Transmissions. Farnsworth and invited him to England by John Logie Baird, a Scotsman who was the other developer of a workable television system based on the revolving disk. At the Crystal Palace in London Farnsworth's demonstration (in which he transmitted a signal that was picked up 25 miles away) was such a success that Parliament voted to have the British Broadcasting Company (BBC ) start television service for the London area. The Baird Company and Marconi EMI were chosen by the BBC to be the suppliers for television.
1936f- Farnsworth and Berlin to make a licensing agreement with Fernseh AG, who worked closely with the Baird Company. Fernseh was headed by Dr. Paul Goerz who had been appointed by the German Reich as the co-ordinator for radio and television, although he was not a Nazi.
1937f - PATENT - Farnsworth's U.S. Patent 2,089,054 Patent Granted "Incandescent Light Source" Filed March 9, 1936, Granted August 3, 1937. CLICK TO VIEW PATENT.

1937 - Nobel Prize: Clinton Davisson of Bell Telephone Laboratories wins the Nobel Prize in Physics for experimental confirmation of the wave nature of the electron. He becomes the first of seven Nobel Prize winners produced by AT&T.
1937f - Fernseh, American Telephone and Telegraph (AT&T) signed an agreement with Farnsworth July 22, 1937 giving Farnsworth and AT&T the right to use each other's patents. These three agreements helped solidify Farnsworth's reputation with worldwide recognition
1937m - Died: Guglielmo Marconi (1874-1937), of a heart attack, on July 20, in Rome, Italy. Radio Transmitters around the world closed down for two minutes silence in his memory.

1937t - Tesla composed a treatise entitled "The Art of Projecting Concentrated Non-dispersive Energy through the Natural Media" concerning charged particle beams. Tesla published the document in an attempt expound on the technical description of a "superweapon that would put an end to all war". This treatise of the particle beam is currently in the Nikola Tesla Museum archive in Belgrade. It described an open ended vacuum tube with a gas jet seal that allowed particles to exit, a method of charging particles to millions of volts, and a method of creating and directing nondispersive particle streams (through electrostatic repulsion).
1937t - Tesla is hit and injured by a car during one of his regular walks along the streets of New York. Soon after that, he is down with pneumonia of which he never completely recovers.

1938 - The telephone system of Murray was modernized from the old magneto lever cranking system to a flash system. The changeover was a welcomed technological improvement.
1938al - Alexanderson was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Upsala . As a result of the gradual broadening of its work to cover numerous fields, Alexanderson's Radio Consulting Department was renamed the Consulting Engineering Department in 1928, and in 1933 it became the Consulting Engineering Laboratory. In connection with the reorganization of General Electric in 1945, this laboratory was merged with General Electric's General Engineering Laboratory to form the General Engineering and Consulting Laboratory.
1938f - Although Farnsworth was able to show a remarkably clear image of over a foot square to the Franklin Institute, Philco became restive as expenses mounted.

1938f - With the advent of World War II however, Farnsworth's close working relationships with the Germans and the British dwindled as the presidents of both of these companies were called to serve their countries.
1938s - 1944 - Kentucky Dam. TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) - Located in Western Kentucky on the Tennessee River creates the largest manmade lake in the Eastern U.S. The huge job of building Kentucky Dam took six years from the start of construction on July 1, 1938, until the reservoir began filling on August 30, 1944. More important than the project's size are the jobs it performs. Kentucky Dam is the spigot that TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) uses to help control floods on the lower Ohio and Mississippi rivers; it is the gateway to the Tennessee River waterway and is a major generating plant in the TVA power system.
1939 - TV is demonstrated at the New York Worlds Fair. Edwin Armstrong is operating W2XMN - a 50,000 watt FM station at Alpine, N.J. The first Television sets are sold by several manufacturers. The start of the European war renews interest in short-wave receivers.

1939 0901 - The Second World War begins, September 1; September 3, England and France declare War on Germany.
1939f - Farnsworth and RCA. In 1939, RCA obtained a license from Farnsworth to produce electronic television transmission systems that combined his technology with theirs. Farnsworth later conducted research on radar and nuclear energy. Zworykin And Sarnoff went to California a couple of months later -- to see what Philo was up to in his laboratory. Later Zworykin was said to have claimed that RCA wouldn't need anything Farnsworth had done. Then RCA's tough chief, David Sarnoff, came to take a look. He echoed Zworykin. But later RCA found that it very badly needed some of Farnsworth's patents and paid for rights on a royalty arrangement.
••• ••• The young American and the Russian emigre worked contemporaneously, though separately, to develop television. When Farnsworth applied for an electronic television patent he really shook RCA, whose laboratories under Vladimir Zworykin had long been struggling with the problem. RCA challenged the application.
