Robert H. Marriott, 1912, completed the first Pacific Coast commercial broadcasting system operative between an island off the coast of California and the California mainland. Also, he was the first man in America to use the telephone and detector method for radio reception.

Greenleaf W. Pickard, 1913, received a patent for a silicon crystal detector in 1906, and he founded the Wireless Specialty Apparatus Company in order to market his detectors.

Louis W. Austin, 1914, worked at the Bureau of Standards, where he studied radio propagation studies. He also supervised a radio laboratory at the Bureau of Standards.

John Stone Stone, 1915, invented the Stone common battery, and served as associate engineer for the American Telephone and Telegraph Company’s research and development department.

Arthur E. Kennelly, 1916, co-founded the Heaviside-Kennelly layer in the ionosphere with Oliver Heaviside in 1901, which contributed to the study of radio waves.

Michael I. Pupin, 1917, taught mathematical physics at Columbia University. He also studied wave propagation, and applied his findings to long distance telephony experiments and research.

George W. Pierce, 1918-19, is considered to be one of the founding fathers of communication engineering.

John V. L. Hogan, 1920, was one of the founders of the classical music radio station WQXR. He was also the founder of the Society of Wireless Telegraph Engineers.

Ernst F. W. Alexanderson, 1921, invented a self-exciting alternator. He also designed a series of high-frequency alternators for radio use.

Fulton Cutting, 1922, was former president and chairman of the Colonial Radio Corporation in Buffalo, New York.

Irving Langmuir, 1923, worked at the General Electric Research Laboratory, and helped to modernize vacuum tube engineering.

John Harold Morecroft, 1924, was an engineering professor at Pratt Institute and Columbia University, and he served as a scientific expert to the U.S. Navy.

John H. Dellinger, 1925, was vice president of the International Scientific Radio Union, and served as chairman of the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics.

Donald M. McNicol, 1926, worked for land-line telegraph companies, and published three books about telegraph engineering.

Ralph Bown, 1927, focused on improving long-distance communication, and he led the press conference that announced the invention of the transistor.
