  • Samuel Morse Samuel Finley Breeze Morse was born
    in Charlestown, Mass. on 27th April 1791.
  • He was not a scientist - he was a professional
    artist.
  • Educated at Phillips Academy at Andover, he
    graduated from Yale in 1810 and he lived in
    England from 1811 to 1815, exhibiting at the
    Royal Academy in 1813.
  • He spent the next ten years as an itinerant
    artist with a particular interest in portraiture.
  • He returned to America in 1832 having been
    appointed Professor of Painting and Sculpture at
    the University of the City of New York.

It was on this homeward voyage that he overheard
a shipboard discussion on electromagnets. This
was the seed out of which the electric telegraph
grew. Morse is remembered for his Code, still
used, and less for the invention that enabled it
to be used, probably since landline telegraphy
eventually gave way to wireless telegraphy.

status of the telegraph network as it existed in
the U.S. in 1853, only nine years after the first
message. By this time, only one state east of the
Mississippi, Florida, was not connected by
telegraph. The legend on the left offers the list
of message rates from Pittsburgh. By 1861,
telegraph lines connected the American continent
by 1866, the transatlantic cable connected
America and Europe.
