Good to know: Samuel Finnley-Breeze Morse was an American inventor and professor of painting, sculpture and drawing. Morse developed from 1837 the first usable Writing telegraph (Morse apparatus). Together with his colleague Alfred Vail, Morse also created an early form, later known as Land Line Code or American Morse Code. Thus Morse created the practical conditions for a reliable electrical telegraphy, as it was used a little later. (Text: Wikipedia)
