From the guide to the Guglielmo Marconi manuscript material : 1 item, 1899, (The New York Public Library. Carl H. Pforzheimer Collection of Shelley and His Circle.)

Guglielmo Marconi was an Italian physicist who spent much of his professional life in Great Britain. In the late 1890s he began experimenting with wireless telegraphy, which culminated on December 14, 1901, with the first trans-Atlantic transmission of a wireless telegraph. Marconi would later go on to experiment with short-wave radio and microwaves. For a brief period that overlaps with his experiments with wireless telegraphy, he was engaged to an American he met on the steamer St. Paul from New York to England, Josephine Bowen Holman. Marconi and Holman were engaged from 1899 to the beginning of 1902, when the engagement was broken off by Marconi.
