No question about it. Both Fessenden and the Major should get "front and center" credit for their many contributions to radio.   DeForest, on the other hand, should be nothing more than a sleazy footnote in broadcasting history.  It's been said that many of the "inventions" that DeForest "made", were already made by other inventors.  And he called himself "The Father of Radio".  No way, Lee.
