Best I can do is initials -

This from my Hayt/Kemmerly Engineering Circuit Analysis text:

Thevenin is named after M.L. Thevenin, a French engineer working in
telegraphy, who first published a statement of the theorem in 1883.

E.L. Norton was a scientist formerly with Bell labs. (I remember my college
professor calling Norton a "glory grabber" since his theorem is really a
corollary to Thevenin's and is easily deduced from it using source
transformations.)

Subject: [SI-LIST] : Who are Thevenin and Norton?

Even my college professor fiends haven't been able to answer this for me!

Thevenin and Norton made significant contributions to electronics with
their respective equivalent circuits. I have tried to find, without
success, their first (full) names and when they lived, or at least when
they formulated their equivalent circuit ideas.

Are there any members on this list who might have a reference book that
would give this info?

Thanks for any help.
