FORMAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF WM F COOKE JOURNAL DISCOVERY
- PART 3 OF 8
The basis of all electric digital binary communications on Earth as man knows it would not exist without the basic foundation of the elements found in the early long lost 19th century manuscript journal and telegraph builder's workbook of England's William Fothergill Cooke only recently found.
The manuscript book has been lost for almost two centuries. The work found in Cooke's journal was executed between the years 1836 and 1842. The journal originated in England, yet was found in America. The Journal has travelled one fifth of the world before it was discovered in the late 1990's. During the course of its travels since its inception in 1775, the Journal has spent time in four different countries, two of which were across the Atlantic Ocean.
In this short video, world renown international telegraph historian Thomas B. Perera announces the discovery and authentication of long lost telegraph builder's manuscript journal found by American based historian and archivist Richard Warren Lipack in the late 1990's.
Addressing the Antique Wireless Association's (AWA) 50th Anniversary meeting at the Rochester Institute of Technology hotel and convention complex in Rochester New York on 18 August 2012, explains how, when first found, the important journal was disguised as a old scrapbook filled with old late 19th century newspaper and magazine clippings. The Professor goes on to discuss how the Journal first came to America in 1842, with Frederick Kerby - the machinist for the Wm. F. Cooke and Charles Wheatstone partnership that developed the first perfected commercial digital electric communications telegraph system on Earth between 1836 and 1840.
The video also reveals how in their official newsletter publication of January 2013, the prestigious English based Newcomen Society acknowledged the discovery in American of what has come to be known as Codex Lipack - or the original manuscript telegraph builder's journal of William Fothergill Cooke.
The video further explores how John Liffen, then Curator of Communications at the Science Museum in London initially heralded what was thought originally to be 'Kerby's journal' as possibly contributing greatly to a general lack of knowledge on the subject of the development of the telegraph in England - but then later publicly decried before the Newcomen Society in both a 2007 lecture discourse and then in a later paper about how little to nothing exists documenting early electric communications development in England. The Science Museum curator reiterated this position during a lecture at the Salford University concerning early telegraph and telephony communications 10 March 2012.
This was all while Richard Warren Lipack was in direct communications with curator Liffen over a ten year period, but found no sincere interest forthcoming from either the curator or the Science Museum hierarchy itself.
Strangely, the Newcomen Society, who acknowledged the Cooke Journal discovery in 2013, maintains its offices at the Science Museum in London!
The video also addresses how in October 2014 the United States Army Signal Corps Officers Candidate Association officially acknowledged that Cooke and Wheatstone indeed in fact invented and developed the first perfected digital electric commercial communications system - over that of America's Samuel Morse.
At the website www.WilliamFothergillCooke.com this miraculous story is now to be told for the very first time, in parts and revealed from the actual pages of the Cooke journal for scholars, students and historians the world over.
The world's communications history has been re-written and re-defined. The story is entitled: INTERNATIONAL TREASURE: THE LOST JOURNAL OF WILLIAM FOTHERGILL COOKE.
This is how modern civilization as we know it began.
This third of eight video clips is a sample clip taken from the full 2 1/2 hour video documentary produced and directed by international historian, author and Cooke journal discoverer Richard Warren Lipack.
The full 2 1/2 hour documentary will soon be made available for study along with all pages of the Cooke journal itself through a "Premium Content" subscription.
