Jansky -- history
Can you enlarge on
a) Just what attention (popular and scientific) Jansky did receive before Reber
b) "1935 . . . told to turn attention elsewhere"
Was this lack of scientific interest? Or lack of relevance to Bell Labs mission? Or Jansky's own desires?
Josh.

P.S. -- on "obliteration"
It is remarkable how rare are citations to Jansky today. (See any issue of Science Citation Index.) This says something about the irrelevance of citation counts to scientific impact.
