For instance, an American Joseph Henry and an Englishman, Michael Faraday proved that currents in one wire could produce currents in another. Edouard Branly, a Frenchman, invented a devise that could receive Marconi's transmissions and ring a bell. John Fleming, an Englishman, invented the vacuum tube necessary to receive radio waves which was later improved by another American, Lee deForest. But none of this would have been possible without a means to collect the sounds for transmissions. The common belief is that themicrophone was invented by an Irishman......
