 About the Book 

Using patents, published and unpublished documents, and interviews with television pioneers including Zworykin himself, Abramson reconstructs the inventors life from his early years in Russia, through his stay as RCAs technical guru under DavidMoreUsing patents, published and unpublished documents, and interviews with television pioneers including Zworykin himself, Abramson reconstructs the inventors life from his early years in Russia, through his stay as RCAs technical guru under David Sarnoff, to his death in 1982. More than fifty photographs show highlights of Zworykins work. Abramson notes the contributions of other scientists - particularly Zworykins biggest rival, Philo T. Farnsworth - to the advancement of television. However, he argues, it was Zworykins inventions that made modern, all-electronic television possible, causing many to award him the title father of television.
