The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers traces its history to the founding of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers in the spring of 1884. We know that the AIEE included such notables as Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell, but who were some of the other founders and what technologies did they bring to the organization? This paper attempts to shed more light on these questions and to show some of the interactions between these engineers, inventors, and entrepreneurs.
