Marconi Lauded Role of Jews in Radio

THE DEATH TUESDAY OF SENATOR GUGLIELMO MARCONI, INVENTOR OF WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY, RECALLED THE OCCASION A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN THE INVESTOR OF WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY PRAISED THE “EXCEPTIONALLY LARGE” CONTRIBUTION OF JEWS TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF WIRELESS AND IN OTHER FIELDS OF SCIENCE.

IN AN INTERVIEW WITH THE JEWISH TELEGRAPHIC AGENCY IN 1931, SENATOR MARCONI SINGLED OUT DAVID SARNOFF, PRESIDENT OF THE RADIO CORPORATION OF AMERICA, PROFESSOR M. ABRAMS, OF PARIS, AND DR. ALLESSANDRO ARTOM, ITALIAN JEWISH SCIENTIST, FOR YEOMAN WORK IN RADIO.
