Distinguished Scientists (Einstein, Tesla, Langmuir, Steinmetz, etc.) on a Tour of the Wireless Station, Somerset, NJ (1921)
After World War I, the old New Brunswick Marconi Wireless Station on Easton Avenue in Franklin Township (Somerset) became part of the newly organized Radio Corporation of America (RCA) as station W.I.I. under the World Wide Wireless logo. RCA's David Sarnoff conducted an inspection tour of the facility in 1921. Some of the greatest scientists of the era attended. From left to right: Three unidentified men, David Sarnoff, Thomas J. Hayden, Ernst Julius Berg, S. Benedict, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Charles Proteus Steinmetz, A. N. Goldsmith, A. Malsin, Irving Langmuir, Albert W. Hull, E. B. Pillsbury, Saul Dushman, Richard Howland Ranger, George Ashley Campbell and two unidentified men. Some of the unidentified men might be John Carson, and Ernst Alexanderson. Others may be station engineers like Hayden, who is next to Sarnoff.
