        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.

        Doug Brooks
        .
