RIP Pem "Mother of Television"

Elma G. "Pem" Farnsworth, wife of Philo T. Farnsworth, the inventor of electronic television, died on April 28 at age 98. Author in her own right of Distant Vision: Romance and Discovery on the Invisible Frontier, she, along with her brother Cliff were part of her husband's lab team and made all the technical drawings for her husband's early experiments for television. Known as the "Mother of Television" Elma was also present on September 7, 1927 at the Green Street lab in San Francisco when Philo first demonstrated his electronic television invention. She was later the first person to appear on a cathode-ray-tube receiver via transmission from a camera's at Philo's lab. The notebooks containing her drawings depicting the television invention patent are part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.

Thanks to her husband, I'm employed and I can sit at home and watch the Chiefs.

I believe at one time she said that this color TV stuff is just a fad.
