1931: RADIO COMING OF AGE
FROM ITS INCEPTION IN THE 1920'S, RADIO REALLY BEGAN TO BECOME A NECESSARY PART OF AMERICAN LIFE IN THE 1930'S. BY THE LATE 1930'S NETWORK RADIO WAS AS IMPORTANT TO AMERICAN AS TODAY'S TELEVISION. (AND THE PROGRAMMING WAS SUPERIOR!)
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!
