Farnsworth Television And Radio
In 1983 the USPS issued this set of four stamps honoring some of America's top inventors. Charles Steinmetz devised methods of harnessing high voltage for the Niagara Falls Power Plant, Edwin Armstrong invented FM radio, Nikola Tesla developed the generator and other devices which made alternating current (AC) possible, and Philo T. Farnsworth invented the first television camera.
