1926:RCA A LEADER IN COMMUNICATIONS EVEN THEN
Those of us in the over 65 generation remember when today's "speaker" was termed a "Loudspeaker." This article from the mid 1920's recalls the many marvels which the radio age ushered in as the 20th century progresses.
I am the Hamilton Township Historian at the Hamilton Township Public Library Local History Collection. I served in "G-2;" the U.S. Army Security Agency(ASA) with a "Top Secret Codeword" ("Crypto")military clearance. I have been married 60 years in April of 2014 to Judy Britton, my class of 1951 Hamilton High school sweetheart. We have 3 children and 9 grandchildren, and one great granddaughter. I have been a member of the amateur radio community since 1975 with the call sign WA2RVU. If the good Lord wills it, I will be logging local history when I reach the golden age of 100!
