Cover: As early as 1912, David Sarnoff seemed destined for greatness in telecommunications. While working as a young wireless operator on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, he received the first news of the Titanic's disastrous collision with an iceberg, then remained on duty for 72 hours, relaying information and survivor lists from the rescue ship, the Carpathia.
