Had it not been for the efforts of men like Davenport, De Jacobi, and Page, the benefits of the electric motor would not be enjoyed today. It is the purpose of this article to trace briefly the early history of the science of electro-motion and, in particular, to bring to light and to honor the inventor of the electric motor.
