Great American, Owen Young, founded GE, RCA, NBC, and Public Utilities Reports as well

Incidentally, he also helped found the National Broadcasting Company, NBC. And, as we'll touch on below, he helped found Public Utilities Reports, the publisher of Public Utilities Fortnightly.
But Time magazine named him Man of the Year in 1930 for something else.
