BROADCASTING PIONEERS

Profile America — Sunday, August 19th. Two trailblazers in early electronics, whose inventions changed pastimes the world over, were born in August. One was television pioneer Philo Farnsworth, born 112 years ago. He conceived the idea of television broadcasting while still in high school and realized it at the age of 21. The other was Lee de Forest, born in late August 1873. The Yale doctor of physics invented the three- element vacuum tube, a step toward creating radio. He was an innovator in not only radio and television, but also film, as he synchronized sound to motion pictures. Some 207,000 Americans work in the 7,700 radio and TV broadcasting establishments advanced by Farnsworth and de Forest.
