In January, 1949, Shannon publishes the paper *Communication in the Presence of Noise*, Proc. IRE, Vol. 37, no. 1, pp. 10-21, available here, which establishes the Information Theory. In this paper, the sampling theorem is presented.

Any references about the **history** of the sampling theorem, its connection with Fourier theory, would be appreciated.

EDIT1: In C.E. Shannon, *Mathematical Theory of Communication*, Bell System Technical Journal, Vol. 27, pp. 379–423, 623–656, July, October, 1948, available here, the Sampling Theorem is **Theorem 13**.
