History of the U.S. Telegraph Industry

7 01 2011

I am posting a link to an interesting article in the EH.Net Online Encyclopedia every day this week. This encyclopedia contains a treasure-trove of really great information on economic history related topics.

Today’s selected article is by Tomas Nonnenmacher and is about the history of the telegraphy industry in the United States. Last year, I assigned this article to some of my graduate students because they were creating a website on Montreal Telegraph, which was the dominant telegraph company in Canada in the 1860s.
