    Samuel Morse Invents the Telegraph  (1.10, 2.2, 3.5)
    Any history of cell phones starts with Samuel Morse. He conceived of an electromagnetic telegraph in 1832 and constructed an experimental version in 1835. Then, on October 18, 1842, Morse laid wires between Governor's Island and Castle Garden, New York, a distance of about a mile. Part of that circuit was under water because Morse wanted to show that an underwater cable could transmit signals as well as a copper wire suspended on poles.

    Michael Faraday (1.10, 2.2, 3.5)
    In 1843, a skilled analytical chemist by the name of Michael Faraday began exhaustive research into whether space could indeed conduct electricity, using the principles already established by telegraphy.
  • Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field (1.10, 2.2, 3.5)

    Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field (1.10, 2.2, 3.5)
    In 1864, James Clerk Maxwell released his paper "Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field" which concluded that light, electricity, and magnetism, were all related. All of these worked hand in hand, and all electromagnetic phenomena traveled in waves.
