History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Esther Marion Armstrong was the widow of FM radio inventor Edwin Howard Armstrong. She contined her husband's patent lawsuits against Motorola and Emerson Radio. After 13 years of litigation, she was victorious and won substantial settlements. She used the money to establish awards and promote the legacy and accomplishments of Edwin Howard Armstrong.

Edmund Louis Palmieri (1907-1989) was a federal judge on the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. He was nominated by President Dwight Eisenhower on April 6, 1954, to a new seat created by 68 Stat. 8; he was confirmed by the Senate on May 11, 1954, and received his commission on May 12th. Plamieri served in that capacity until his death on June 15, 1989

During part of this litigation, Ruth Bader Ginsburg served as Judge Palmieri's law clerk.
