Recent scholarship on Jenkins television -- Administrator7 (talk) 09:25, 24 February 2016 (CST)[edit | reply | new]

Donald Godfrey's recent (2014) biography of C. Francis Jenkins states that after his self-disclosed demos of April 1923, in June 1923 Jenkins had USN, Post Office, and NBS officials watch televised "movements of [Jenkins'] hand and other objects held by them in front of his 'radio eye' device." (p. 126). This was reported in the Washington Evening Star (June 15), Washington Post (June 15), and the June 25 issue of Time magazine (chapter endnote 27, p. 243).
