POPPER, JOSEF:

Austrian engineer and author; born Feb. 22, 1838, at Kolin, Bohemia. Besides essays on machinery published in the "Sitzungsberichte der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften," and in several technical journals, he has written: "Das Recht zu Leben und die Pflicht zu Sterben" (1878); "Die Physikalischen Grundsätze der Elektrischen Kraftübertragung" (1884); "Fürst Bismarck und der Antisemitismus" (1886); "Die Technischen Fortschritte nach Ihrer Aesthetischen und Kulturellen Bedeutung" (1889); "Flugtechnik" (1889); "Phantasieen eines Realisten" (1899).

Popper was the first to conceive the idea of the transmission of electrical power; and he explained it in 1862 in a communication to the Imperial Academy of Sciences, Vienna, which published the same in 1882.
