The invention of the Mobile Phone is not completed of we do not cover the biography of certain people, the biography of Henry T. Sampson can be considered as one such biography. He is one such legend without him the journey of the invention of mobile phones is not complete.

Early Life And Childhood

Henry T. Sampson Jr. was born on April 22, 1934, in Jackson, Mississippi, to folks Henry T. Sampson Sr. and Esther B. (Ellis) Sampson. Born in a southern state of the United States of America there was not much chance for growth for a Black boy.  We all know that the Southern States of the USA has a bloody history of slavery and persecution of black persons. In such an environment, confronting everyday slavery. Sampson beat all odds and started to develop himself as somewhat for his family was prodigy child. He was very good in the class in his early years of education and when it was considered that Black people are not good in education, he was giving them a great reply with his academic success. The obstacles that came on his way he made successfully crossed and make himself a person worth remembering

Young Life And Education

 He graduated from Jackson’s Lanier high school in 1951. He then attended Morehouse College in Atlanta, before transferring to Purdue University in Indiana, where he became a member of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity. He received an academic degree in chemical engineering from Purdue University in 1956. He graduated with an MS degree in engineering from the University of California.  In 1961, Sampson also received an MS in engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 1965, and his Ph.D. in 1967. He was the primary African American to earn a Ph.D. in engineering within the USA.

As a good patriotic American Sampson has also wanted to serve his Nation. For that, he joined the US Navy from 1962 to 1964. It was not a single feather in his cap; he was going to achieve more such milestones. While serving as Chemical Engineer in Naval Air Weapon Station China he developed high energy solid propellant for rockets. He was also a mission director in a space program.

Main Achievements

 These are some of the achievements of a person whose main achievement is still absent from this picture. There are many reasons for this; one can say that racism was one such reason. Another reason might be said as the company’s unwillingness to share the credits of the work done by Henry Sampson. This situation still lasts and there is official recognition of the work he has done in the mobile industry. We all know that Mobile was first made by a company but we should keep in mind that

On April 15, 1973, the invention of mobile phone happened dramatically, Motorola engineer Marty Cooper placed the primary public call from a cell phone. In midtown Manhattan, Cooper called Joel Engel, head of rival research department Bell Labs, saying “Joel, this is Marty. I’m calling you from a phone, a true hand-held portable phone.” the call was placed on a Motorola Dynatac 8000x, which weighed 2.5 pounds, a far cry from today’s 4-ounce handsets.

If it wasn’t for Dr. Henry T. Sampson, we wouldn’t have cell phone technology today. Isn’t it funny how the mainstream media hasn’t made him an icon based on his invention? A cellular phone has spawned a multibillion-dollar industry and has freed tens of voluminous people, both reception and at work, to speak anywhere and anytime. He might have thought he would get on the days and Forbes magazine.

On July 6th, 1971, Henry T Sampson invented the “gamma-electric cell,” which pertains to reactor use. Per Dr. Sampson, the gamma-electric cell produces high-voltage output and current to detect radiation within the ground. With the invention of telephone service in 1983, personal communications now not relied on wires. Within the 1990s it might become possible to attach to the net from virtually anywhere within the world employing a personal computer and a cellular modem with satellite service.

Technologies that developed from different fields, like personal communications, computations, and space exploration often worked together to serve the constantly evolving human needs of the data age.

Other Notable Works By Henry T. Sampson

Henry T. Sampson has done some great works for the intellectual growth of Blacks. He was a great Film critique as well as a Film Historian too. He wrote books on the History of black Film and how they evolved over the years. What is the main essence of black films that we are now seeing? Sampson knew the power of mass media so he invested his intellectual capacities in documenting things that can be used to achieve for history and coming generations. This work can also be considered as his tribute to the life he got and the struggles that came with his life.

One can learn many things from Henry T. Sampson. Selflessness is one such quality. Another thing that a person can learn from him is the patriotism that he showed for his country. The love for his community and black lives was also a thing to learn from his life. He was not a radical, a leader, or an activist. But he changed the lives of a lot of people like him and inspired him to select his profession and education before anything.

Today everyone knows Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, or Bill Gates, but some people invest their lifetime to innovate things on the virtue of which these companies sell us things.  They do not get such recognition that these business tycoons get. This is a thing that one needs to think about because celebrating individual efforts should be a primary goal. Achievements that are achieved by Henry T. Sampson need to be celebrated more beautifully.  Henry T. Sampson got a good life of 81 years and died in 2015, from the invention of mobile phones give him this tribute.
