'In the first paragraph of his key 1948 paper on "A Mathematical Theory of Communication" ...Claude Shannon acknowledged his debt to two earlier works. The first was Nyquist's "Certain factors affecting telegraph speed" published in 1924, ... and the second was Hartley's "Transmission of Information". Hartley, a research engineer at Bell Laboratories, wanted to establish a quantitative measure to compare the capacities of various types of communications systems - telephone, television, etc.-to transmit information.'
