Forgotten Historical Figures:   Physicians, Inventors, Friends, and Family

This section is dedicated to friends and family that encompassed the vast field of early X-Rays and
electrotherapeutics.  Many of the names are of people forgotten over time that made significant
contributions to the medical, X-Ray, and wireless fields.  A vast collection of  physicians, authors,
instructors, inventors, researchers, and eccentric showmen - the names are familiar, but the faces
and histories behind their work is not. 

Please call or email us if you have a historical family member or know anything about a forgotten
Victorian contemporary.

A classic example is to the left:  William Benham Snow - famous author and advocate of Static Electric
Machines.  His great granddaughter Donna emailed us after visiting our site.  Its quite magic to have
read Snow's books and now have a face to put with the name. 

We've compiled a series of short biographies and clips regarding various historical figures.  These
will be updated as we find more information.  Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated.
