Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

I have to admit that when I saw this large advertisement for the Sarkes Tarzian company in Radio & TV News magazine, I didn't recall ever having heard of the company. According to Wikipedia, "Sarkes Tarzian (1900-October 1987) was an American engineer, inventor, and broadcaster... He attended the University of Pennsylvania and received an undergraduate degree in 1924 and a graduate degree in 1927. Tarzian worked for the Atwater Kent company and then for RCA... He founded the manufacturing company Sarkes Tarzian Enterprises in 1944, and was involved in early experiments in VHF audio broadcasting in 1946. Tarzian was a member of the Rotary Club. In 1949 he started television station WTTV in Bloomington. He sold that station in 1978. The Sarkes Tarzian company was an important manufacturer of radio and television equipment, television tuners, and components. Its FM radio receivers helped to popularize the broadcast medium."
