Excerpt from The Story of Wireless Telegraphy

As we shall see in the following pages, the anticipation, the forecast of such a triumph, was in men's minds from the very earliest days of telegraphy, and from that time to the present keen intellects and indomitable wills - one after another - never ceased to be turned to the solu tion of the problem. First they sought an answer in one direction, then in another. Ever there was a reply sufficiently alluring to keep the ball rolling - to keep the ranks of the investiga tors full; and the achievements of one generation of workers after another served as the stepping stones over which their successors moved to more assured successes, until finally the goal was won, if we can consider anything as final when there is so much still to win from the unknown.
