"The American Wire Gauge (AWG) system was originally designed by J. R. Brown in 1857 and was first known as the Brown & Sharp (B&S) Gauge. Wire was formed by drawing it through a series of decreasingly smaller diameter holes. The gauge roughly represented the number of steps involved in drawing the particular size. Thus, for example, a 24 gauge wire was drawn through 4 more steps than was a 20 gauge wire."
