Soemmering Soem·mer·ing (zɶ'mər-ĭng), Samuel Thomas von. 1755-1830.
German anatomist noted for describing and naming the cranial nerves.
The first application of voltaic electricity to telegraphic purposes was made by Mr. soemmering in 1809.
In 1811, soemmering simplified his apparatus as regards the number of signs.
This presentation gave rise to a series of letters addressed by soemmering to the Baron.
soemmering was led to take up electric telegraphy in a very curious way.
Upon the whole, the only important one of these electro-chemical apparatus is that of soemmering.
The possibility of the system was recognized, and soemmering at once had an apparatus constructed according to it.
