George Westinghouse 1846 - 1914
Bruce Morgenstern

 George Westinghouse  

1846 • 1914

Born on October 6, 1846, George Westinghouse received his first patent, October 3, 1865, for a rotary steam engine. His last patent was issued in 1918, four years after his death. Between those two patents were 359 others, many of them revolutionary in principle. 

He devised the first effective means of stopping trains - the air brake; he pioneered in the development of railway signals and interlocking switches; he invented a safe and efficient mechanism for joining railway cars; he brought out the first main line electric locomotive and was a pace-maker in railway electrification. 

When the nation's industries needed power, he developed a system for transmitting and using natural gas, and topped this with perhaps his greatest contribution of all - today's alternating current system of generating, transmitting, and utilizing electricity for power and light. 

In September, 1865, George Westinghouse, registered as a sophomore at Union College. Within three months, however, he had convinced himself and his teachers that the usual college curriculum had little to offer one of his mechanical leanings. When Christmas vacation came, he left college once and for all. 

By 1886 he had made the first step towards revolutionizing the area of manufacturing the greatest of all power sources - electricity, for what today we take for granted. On May 23, 1892, George Westinghouse was awarded a contract to light, with, alternating current electricity, the Columbian Exposition, a gala World's Fair to be held in Chicago the following year. The bidding process was based on a per bulb price. Westinghouse's bid was for $ 5.25 / bulb and his competitors came in at between $ 13.98 and $ 18.51 / bulb. In less than a year, George Westinghouse had built a quarter of a million stopper lamps to light up the Fair and to provide ample replacements. The lighting and display were proof to the public that the "Westinghouse’s alternating current" was not the demon they had been led to believe. 

The other crowning achievement in his career, already immeasurably rich in its contribution to the rise of industrial America, came in 1905 when Westinghouse introduced the first alternating-current locomotive. 

After weeks of illness, complicated by heart disease, with his mind still active, George Westinghouse busied himself working out designs for a wheelchair to be operated by electricity. On the morning of March 12, 1914, he died while resting in his wheelchair, his drawings near him.

*************************************

During the 1980's and 1990's, Westinghouse Electric Corporation, Pittsburgh, PA, sold all its industrial assets to numerous companies and focused on its media business. In 1997, Westinghouse  Electric Corporation, was renamed CBS Corporation (a media company). The new, Westinghouse Electric Corporation, New Castle DE, is a subsidiary of CBS Corporation and licensor of the Westinghouse name and trademark.

Under the following link, you will be able to see a 1943 film made by Westinghouse showing 6 different basic use of tubes in industrial, military, radio and television.

Click on the picture to reach the movie on YouTube or HERE. Duration 21 minutes.


Working since many years with industry electronics, it has been very interesting to watch all the applications using vacuum tubes electronics that already were invented in the 1940...

Mr. Televox
Georg Richter
22.Jul.07
  1 In about 1929 the Westinghouse humanoid "Mr. Televox" was celebrating his first birthday since he was manufactured in Pittsburgh(PA):



Due to the fact that "Mr. Televox" is voice-controlled I assume that he has some tubes (valves) inside.

The attached file is in German language.

Two other pictures are here and there. But playing Bridge?

Yes, I know this is not a model for RMorg, but I would like to receive more details.

Kind Regards
Georg
