Within this website, you can read the life story of Philo T. Farnsworth II (Philo's father) - the inventor of television. The material you will find here was compiled from exhaustive interviews conducted with Farnsworth's widow, Elma Gardner "Pem" Farnsworth, and the inventor's oldest son, the late, Philo T. Farnsworth III - himself an inventor cut from the same cloth as his father. Philo's "Yantra House" design (a dodecahedronal home for a family of 4 -- taking up only 12 cubic feet of land area at its base), was highly praised by Buckminster Fuller -- one of Philo's many mentors.
