Philo T. Farnsworth

Visionary Inventor of Television

Series: Inventors Who Changed the World

By Tim O'Shei

When Philo T. Farnsworth was fourteen years old, he made sketches for an idea that would add pictures to radio. Fourteen years later, in 1934, the U.S. Patent office recognized Farnsworth as the inventor of television. Author Tim O’Shei takes us behind the scenes to reveal the life of a genius—his childhood, his experiments with television, the harsh realities of business he faced as an inventor, how his television changed life, and the legacy he left behind.
