Guglielmo Marconi 

(25 April 1874– 20 July 1937)


An Italian inventor, known as the father of long distance radio transmission and for his development of Marconi's law and a radio telegraph system. Marconi is often credited as the inventor of radio.

In 1899, Guglielmo Marconi opened the world's first "wireless" factory under the name The Marconi Wireless Telegraph & Signal Company in Hall Street, Chelmsford. 

For this reason Chelmsford is credited as the "birthplace of radio."
