Oliver Heaviside, physicist, he had no formal education, was also deaf, self educated and had to publish his papers at his own expense because other scientists didn’t accept him. He was the nephew of Charles Wheatstone. Oliver Heaviside discovered the existence of an electrically charged layer known as the Kennelly-Heaviside layer, wrote a book on electromagnetic theory, and coined the terms: conductance, impedance, and inductance. He began signing his work “WORM”, because of his lowly opinion of himself. He was only 5’ 4” tall with red hair, painted his fingernails bright pink and never married. He was an avid cyclist in his youth and died in 1925 at age 74.
