The Telegraph Featured in ‘Bites and Bits’ April 19

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Mahoning Valley Historical Society’s next Bites and Bits of History lunch program will discuss one of the most important technological marvels in history – the telegraph.

Bruce Manning, retired McKean County, Pa., EMA director and amateur extra class license radio operator, will speak about early technology and how the telegraph and radio changed the way we communicate. Explore its inception, use, and impact on the way we share news and information over long distances and its transition into wireless technology – the radio.

The program is at noon on April 19 at the Tyler History Center, 325 W. Federal St. in downtown Youngstown.
