Hedy Lamarr (Hedwig Eva Maria Kresler, Nov 9 1914 - Jan 19 2000)
Born in austria, she fled to the United States during the Third Reich. Not only was she immensly beautiful, and at her time called as the most beautiful woman in the world she had a equally genius mind as well.
At the beginning of the World War II, she and composer George Antheil developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes that used spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology to defeat the threat jamming by the axis powers. Those principles of her work are in corporated into Bluetooth technology and similarly in WiFi as well. She has also acted in several hollywood movies such as Ecstacy(1933), Comrade X(1940), etc...
All her life she always wanted people to see her more than just a beautiful woman but also see what she was capable of.
It was really hard to work on this small size after working on full imperial size... so overlook mistakes if you see any ... Clutch pencil on Paper, A5 (0.3, HB)
