Featured: Paul Beck & other founders
of The Museum of Broadcast Technology
Topic: A Historical Video, Radio,
& Broadcasting Industry Tour and Lecture
The May meeting of the society will
be in Woonsocket, RI. Like our past museum tours, it will
involve traveling to one of the countrys largest collection
of broadcast equipment and technologies, mostly very old
and some new stuff. Read the info below and contact Alvin
Foster if you need transportation.
The telegraph, telephone, electric
light, phonograph, motion pictures and other technologies
existed well before Jewett, Sarnoff and other luminaries
convened at Harvard in 1928. They came together to explore
the governing principles of a high technology
business in order to develop radio and television both as
a commercial enterprise and social force. Their journey
forward to create the tools of a new industry began here.
We invite you to join us in our journey back - to the early
cameras, recorders, and related tools and systems that brought
radio and TV fully into their own.
There will be a light luncheon at 12:30.
Guests are welcome.
(The MBT is a private museum that is
a venture to foster the objectives of Preservation, Restoration
and Education with respect to Radio and Television technologies
and tools, spanning from the 1930s to present day.)
