"Emile (originally Emil) Berliner was born in Hanover, Germany, on May 20, 1851 Enticed by the offer of a clerkship in a store partly owned by a man named Behrend, and perhaps by a desire to escape the military duty that faced most young men in the year of the Franco-Prussian War, Berliner persuaded his parents to allow him to accept the job offer and to emigrate to America. In late March 1870 he left Hanover. In the United States he founded his own telephone Company."
