Caption: Irving Langmuir and Guglielmo Marconi in the General Electric Research Laboratory, New York, 1922. Marconi (1874-1937, right) was an Italian inventor best known for his development of a wireless telegraph system, for which he shared the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics with Karl Ferdinand Braun. He established the first wireless communication across the Atlantic in 1901. Langmuir (1881- 1957) was an American chemical physicist who worked for the General Electric Company. He won the 1932 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on surface chemistry. This portrait is from the Bain News Service, one of America's oldest news picture agencies, which holds images dating from the 1890s to the 1930s.
