Benjamin Franklin was born in 1706, and was fascinated in his youth by electrical phenomena. In 1732 he founded with his collaborators the Library Company of Philadelphia with the support of the Perm family, and achieved a new insight into electrical science with his definition of a 'single electric fire'. This is equivalent to the free-electron concept, and implies the principle of the conservation of charge.
