Evan I. Schwartz (au). A fascinating story about the conflict between David Sarnoff & Philo Farnsworth. A tale of genius vs. greed, innocence vs. deceit, & independent brilliance vs. corp. arrogance. Many men have laid claim to the title “father of TV,” but Farnsworth is the true genius behind what may be the most influential invention of our time. Driven by his obsession to demonstrate his idea, Farnsworth was operating his own laboratory in San Francisco & filing for patents. The resulting publicity caught the attention of RCA tycoon David Sarnoff, who  determined to control TV in the same way he monopolized radio. This is the story of the epic struggle between two equally passionate adversaries whose clash symbolized a turning point in the culture of creativity. Illus.
