Image: P.T. Barnum: Genius of the Three Ring Circus (Historical American Biographies), by Karen Clemens Warrick. Publisher: Enslow Publishers (February 2001)3-Ring Circus Day
-- In 1835, P. T. Barnum ran the first major three-ring circus in the United States. The Barnum and Bailey circus was later formed, which featured the elephant Jumbo as part of the Greatest Show on Earth.

Read: P.T. Barnum: Genius of the Three Ring Circus, by Karen Clemens Warrick
-- How Barnum grew from a barefoot boy in a bankrupt family to become the wealthy Prince of Humbugs, later morphing into the charitable Friend of Children is a fascinating story. Running neighborhood lotteries, sharpening his bartering skills, and studying how to use the foibles of humans in the good-natured give-and-take of general stores, Barnum learned to make entertainment acceptable in America's Puritan-influenced atmosphere by cloaking it as education.

Image: Signor Marconi's Magic Box: The Most Remarkable Invention Of The 19th Century and The Amateur Inventor Whose Genius Sparked A Revolution, by Gavin Weightman. Publisher: Da Capo Press; New edition edition (August 20, 2003)Radio Patented (1896)
-- Guglielmo Marconi read an article that grabbed his attention. It suggested the possibility of using radio waves to communicate without wires. He jumped right on the problem. He began experimenting at his family's home near Bologna. Within a year he had sent and received signals beyond the range of vision (including over a hill) and then over increasingly great distances -- up to two miles! He took out a patent in 1896.

Read: Signor Marconi's Magic Box: The Most Remarkable Invention Of The 19th Century and The Amateur Inventor Whose Genius Sparked A Revolution, by Gavin Weightman
-- At a time when the telephone, telegraph, and electricity made the whole world wonder just what science would think of next, the startling answer had come in 1896 in the form of two mysterious wooden boxes containing a device one Guglielmo Marconi had rigged up to transmit messages through the ether. It was the birth of the radio, and no scientist in Europe or America, not even Marconi himself, could at first explain how it worked... it just did.
