Reuter

Reuter
Paul Julius Baron von Reuter (July 21, 1816 - February 25, 1899) was a German-born British journalist and media owner, the founder of Reuters news agency ... He was born in Kassel, Germany to a Jewish family.His father was a rabbi. His birthname was Israel Beer Josaphat. In Göttingen Reuter met Carl Friedrich Gauss who experimented with the transmission of electrical signals via wire.

Reuter moved to London on October 29, 1845, calling himself Joseph Josephat. On November 16 he converted to Christianity and changed his name to Paul Julius Reuter. One week later on November 23, he married Ida Maria Elizabeth Clementine Magnus in Berlin. After the failed Revolution of 1848, he fled from Germany and went to Paris and worked there in Charles-Louis Havas' news agency, the future Agence France Presse.

While telegraphy evolved, Reuter first founded the Reuters News Agency in Aachen which transferred messages between Brussels and Aachen using carrier pigeons. This was the missing link to connect Berlin and Paris. The carrier pigeons were much faster than the post train, giving Reuter faster access to stock news from the Paris stock exchange. In 1851, the carrier pigeons were superseded by a direct telegraph link.... (From en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Julius_Reuter )
