Thaddeus Cahill was born somewhere in Iowa (exact location unknown) back in 1867. I don’t have a lot of information (none) about his parents or early upbringing. What I can tell you about his is that he studied physics of music at Oberlin Conservatory in Oberlin, Ohio. He worked as a clerk for Congress in Washington, D.C. to pay for his college studies.
In 1889, he graduated from Columbian Law School.
After graduation, he established a laboratory at Holyoke with his brother Arthur. It was there that he invented something that is still in use to this day (more on that in a moment). His invention weighed in at a hefty 7 tones with a price tag of @200,000.00 which is equivalent to $5,514,000.00 today. With the price tag only three were built, thus his vision was never fully implemented.
What you may not know about Thaddeus is that he invented the first electric organ. He was also convinced that the music could be broadcasted into hotels, restaurants, theaters and homes via the telephone lines. His idea was the precursor to what we now know as streaming media.
