Phil Harvey

As the Light Reading Hall of Fame poll keeps going and anticipation builds for the 2018 inductees, a few of you wondered who else has made it into the hallowed Hall since it opened in 2010. (See Light Reading Hall of Fame 2018 Poll: Who Stays? Who Goes? and It's Miller Time: Light Reading's Hall of Fame Poll Is Now Open.)

Here is a quick recap of the winners, along with the reports we filed at the time discussing the inductees.

    For the annex
    I suggest a Veterans Committee to backfill for the telecom deadball era. Like Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Watson. And Rutherford B. Hayes, who had the first phone installed in the White House. And the great great great grandfather of data comm, Alexander Bain, inventor of the "electric printing telegraph" (aka fax machine).
