    Developed the electron gun
    Pioneered modern TV tuners
    His company is called 'Sarkes Tarzian, Inc.'
    His name evokes images of Tarzan.
    His major invention, the electron gun, is instrumental in delivering many brain-stagnating TV shows to young children, contributing to youth obesity.
    On that same note, he probably enabled lots of adults to become fat, as well.
    Part of his massive, deer-inhabited estate has been developed into ritzy townhouses, drawing criticism from local environmental groups.
    He revolutionized the way we watch TV.
    His family emigrated from Armenia to escape persecution.
    As a child, he worked at several jobs to help his parents.
    He was the top high school graduate in Philadelphia (1918).
    He automatically received a scholarship to the University of Pennsylvania.
    He said: 'We're thankful to the good Lord for the United States of America, where people like us can come and be greeted with open arms. Here, if you are interested and you are willing to put the effort in, you have the chance to accomplish wonderful things.'
