Michael Maryllian a.k.a. Michael "Emdash" Maryllian (1841 - 1924) was an American poet born in Maryland.

History[edit | edit source]

From 1859 - 1865 he worked for a midwestern telegraph line. His poem "Telegraph road" inspired the Dire Straits to the song of the same name. In June 1860 "on a low, empty evening without telegrams" he invented a distance-based cipher which became known as Maryllian Cipher or simply "The Maryllian".
