Does the name Leland Stanford ring any bells for you?? He was the President of the Central Pacific Railroad but also involved in an invention that impacts nearly everything we watch today. We all watch TV and or go to the movies or create our own video’s but have you ever wondered how moving pictures came to be. Who was the first to use a high speed shutter and who may have been the first to use an electronic shutter. Check out our brief review of “The Inventor and the Tycoon”.
http://www.cwrailman.com/index.html Had it not been for the intervention of Leland Stanford and later his money to finance the project and a courts failure to convict a killer who never denied his crime despite the fact that there were numerous eye witnesses to the event, the invention of moving pictures might have taken a different route.

I was thinking he might be Fred's brother, but that was Sanford. No "T".
