Emile Baudot Biography
Emile Baudot, (September 11, 1845 - March 28, 1903), French telegraph engineer and inventor of the Baudot code. One of the pioneers of telecommunication.

The term "baud" (a measure of symbols transmitted per second) is named after Emile Baudot.

In 1949, the French Post Office issued a series of stamps with his portrait. By mistake, the year of his birth was given as 1848, not the correct 1845. The stamps were subsequently re-issued with the correct year.
