Alexander won the Elliott Cresson Medal, because he discovered and invented an object that helped out millions around the country, and billions around the globe. Alexander won the IEEE Edison Medal, because he contributed the Electrical Science community, by inventing something that, in order to work, used electricity. Alexander won the John Fritz Medal for contributing to the Association of Engineering Society by using, as well as inventing, the telephone. In conclusion, I think Alexander deserves to be held high in the science community, because he invented something that millions upon millions use every day. The invention helps out people by making their lives more manageable and more convenient.
Many scientist are honored by many people for their great works for society. One scientist who is honored for his many inventions and achievements is Thomas Edison. Thomas Edison is a very revered and honored man because of his the many inventions. In 1877 Edison invented the first phonograph, shortly before that he had been very close to inventing the telephone. Alexander Graham Bell was able to patent the first telephone so Edison's new invention, the light bulb, is said to be the “comeback” from losing to Bell.
Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor that greatly influenced life all around the world. His inventions helped shape modern day technology. Technology taken for granted today evolved from some of Thomas Edison’s inventions. One of his greatest contributions to society is his work with electricity. As a result of his works, society today is extremely dependent on electricity.
In 1928 Thomas Alva Edison was awarded congressional medal of honor. This award was given to him because of the practical and imaginative talent he used to life easer for the people of the United States (Dolan 109). Thomas Alva Edison was considered one of the greatest inventors and industrial leader. He had over 1000 inventions but none greater then his ability to develop a system that would provide people with a wide safe stable and efficient light and power. This also lead to other countries such as Europe and South America to follow this wonderful invention that modernized the world forever.
Nikola Tesla the Electrical Genius Occasionally a brilliant mind can bring about momentous concepts and ideas that change the entirety of civilization for humanity. An inventor who has turned their concept into reality is behind each and every tool. Each inventor has left an impact on the world, even long after death. However, the inventor Nikola Tesla has left a much larger legacy than most, even arguably more so than the well-renowned inventor, Thomas Edison. Nikola Tesla embodies the true essence of the inventor even more so than his counterpart and archrival, Thomas Edison.
Thomas Alva Edison was an interesting character and his works are still valued and his contributions to the world were invaluable to today’s modern technology. He was most know as an inventor, especially for the light bulb but there was much more to him as well. He was a successful businessman and entrepreneur. He was born in Ohio on February 11, 1847 but spent his early years of his life in Michigan. This is where his family settled down after his father fought in the war of 1812.
Biography of Thomas Edison Thomas Alva Edison is one of the most famous inventors. He saw many changes take place in his lifetime. His inventions were responsible for many of those changes. Some of his inventions were the telephone, the light bulb, the movie projector, and the phonograph. These inventions contributed to modern day, lights, movies, telephones, records and CDs.
This was an electric machine that was used to send messages back and forth in the form of dots and dashes. Longer or shorter dashes stood for different letters, and put together, they created words (Barnham). Though Edison had started out with simple jobs that didn’t take much time or effort, he eventually became a professional telegrapher. Only later on did he realize his real calling in life was to become an inventor. In 1877, Edison created his favorite invention of all; the phonograph.

(6) Thomas Edison was responsible for many of the world’s greatest inventions and technology, such as the light bulb and the phonograph.
His inventions, patents, and research are all still used today, and can be accredited for revolutionizing the electrical industry, and even the way America is supplied electricity. He made groundbreaking strides in a variety of scientific fields, and pioneered even more that no one had ever dreamed about before. He is immortalized today by memorials, plaques, pop culture and biographies, and other awards and inventions named in his honour. Museums around the world are dedicated to his brilliance, and many of the places he frequented and lived in have been made historical sites. To me, Nikola Tesla was a great man and a role model.
