Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

You have to be careful when working this crossword puzzle from the August 1960 edition of Popular Electronics magazine because in one instance the name of a certain federal agency has changed since then, and in another instance the element cited as being "commonly used" no longer is. It will add to the challenge, which, honestly, is not all that great. I did not have the magazine page with the solution available when posting this so I had to work the puzzle myself to create a solution. If you are an ardent cruciverbalist as am I, you might want to try some of the hundreds of technically-themed crossword puzzles I have created which have only words and clues related to science, engineering, mathematics, etc.
