An amazing bit of electronic history just in today via Justin Maxwell @303

" Merry xmas, synth nerds. Here's a never-published 1934 bio of the inventor of the 1st electronic musical instrument, Thaddeus Cahill by his brother. I've been meaning to digitize this for 20 years.

For those not familiar with Thaddeus Cahill and the Telharmonium, via Wikipedia:

"Thaddeus Cahill (June 18, 1867 – April 12, 1934) was a prominent inventor of the early 20th century. He is widely credited with the invention of the first electromechanical musical instrument, which he dubbed the telharmonium."
