Edward W. Kellogg (1882–1960[1]), born in Washington, a graduate of Phillips Academy, Andover (Class of 1902), was the joint inventor of the moving coil loudspeaker in 1925 along with Chester W. Rice at General Electric, and independently by Edward Wente at Bell Labs. Kellogg also patented an electrostatic loudspeaker in 1934.
