Philo Taylor Farnsworth was born in Beaver, Utah back in 1906 to Lewis and Serena. He grew up in a log cabin built by his father until 1918, when the family moved to a 240-acre ranch near Rigby, Idaho. His education was at the Rigby High School. The family moved again to Provo, Utah in 1923 where he attended Brigham Young High School.
After graduation, he applied to the United States Naval Academy scoring the nation’s second-highest score on academy recruiting results. Within a few months of being accepted he obtained an honorable discharge. He returned to Utah enrolling at Brigham Young University. He moved again to Berkeley, California where he set up a lab at 202 Green Street, while there he received his first patent. His patent was first seen by the press in 1928. As they say the rest is history.
What you may not know about Philo is that he built and patented the first all-electric image device of course what we now call the TV.
