Table of contents What's This?
A collection of material related to the Italian inventor and electrical engineer Guglielmo Marconi and his chief engineer Richard Norman Vyvyan.
Guglielmo Marconi (1874-1937) was an Italian physicist and electrical engineer who spent much of his professional life in Great Britain. In the late 1890s, he began experimenting with wireless telegraphy, which culminated on December 14, 1901, with the first trans-Atlantic transmission of a wireless telegraph. Marconi would later go on to experiment with short-wave radio and microwaves.
