He's got EECS (Electrical Engineering & Computer Science) degree 😁

In terms of communications, some fellas who stood out:
Alexander Graham Bell
Nikola Tesla
Marconi
Major E. Armstrong
Martin Cooper

Of course, communications wouldnt have gone far without the help of computers, information & coding theory and electronics 😉 MaRo had some of the stalwarts in those fields already.

Ash, My vote has always been for Tesla as far as the past century goes. We owe so many things to him (alternating current, induction motors, flourescent bulbs, radio transmission, etc.) & he is almost forgotten. Why he even helped two of the others on your list. Leonard Theramin also goes on my list.
