The Pickup

Here's something I've always wondered. Who was it who first thought, "Hey, if I wrap some wire around this magnet, put it under guitar strings, run the wires over to this radio thingy - why, I could hear the guitar a LOT louder!"

Leo Fender and Les Paul worked with existing technology, as, I think, did the engineers at Rickenbacker. So who is the granddaddy of the pickup? Does anyone know, perchance?
