90 years ago, in 1873, Maxwell (1831-1879) published his "Treatise On Electricity and Magnetism." The aim of this paper is to review the life and the scientific contributions of one of the first and the most ardent and loyal of his disciples, one of the most brilliant applied mathematicians and scientists of all time, the first modem electrical and electronics engineer, a self-taught man who, more than any other single man, was instrumental in developing the electromagnetic field theory and its classical applications into the form in which it is taught today in our colleges and universities-Oliver Heaviside.
