Caption: John Ambrose Fleming (1849-1945), British physicist and engineer. Fleming was educated at University College London and Cambridge University. He is best-known for inventing the vacuum tube in 1904. This was a crucial advance in electronics, and was used in radios and other electrical equipment for many decades. Fleming, who worked as a consultant for both the Marconi and Edison companies, was knighted in 1929. He also gave many lectures, including the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures of 1894, 1901, 1917, and 1921.
