Typed Letter Signed: "Lee", 1p, 8½x11. Los Angeles, California, 1956 November 29. On personal letterhead to Carl Haverlin, President, Broadcast Music, Inc., New York, N.Y. In full: "What in the world happened to you? We expected confidently to meet you in Chicago, but they knew nothing of you at the Ambassador East Hotel. We hope to see you here in Hollywood very soon. In the meantime, please let us hear from you. Always with kindest regards, Sincerely yours". Lee de Forest patented more than 300 inventions in wireless telegraphy, radio telephony, sound-on-film talking pictures, high-speed facsimile transmission, television, radiotherapy and related areas. One of his most important inventions was the vacuum tube that was used in radios and televisions. He titled his autobiography, Father of Radio, but de Forest did not generally receive that recognition; he is regarded, however, as a major contributor to the development of broadcasting.
