M. Andre invented an electric incandescent lamp that was later improved by Reginald Thomas Dudley Brougham

1880 News item. 'Mr. Ward, engineer of the British Electric Light Company, is making experiments with the Andre incandescent electric lamp, for which is claimed special advantages. An hermetically-sealed globe contains the light, and the lamp altogether, being devoid of mechanical appliances, and the carbon points not being consumed, is simple, and will remain illuminated indefinitely - at least this what claimed for it.'[1]
