March 1963 Popular Electronics Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

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.

This is a different type of electronics-related quiz from Quizmaster Robert P. Balin. Mr. Balin created many monthly quizzes for Popular Electronics magazine. Here you are provided a series of images and a list of men's first names, and you need to match the image to the name. There are nine in all. Sure, it's kind of hokey (especially B and I), but it is a good Friday afternoon challenge to help pass the time until the weekend begins. Enjoy.

Electronic Photo Album Quiz

By Robert P. Balin

Here's an odd photo album: Our electronics-minded artist replaced every photo with a drawing, but each drawing bears some relation to the name of the man whose photo it replaced. Can you match the drawings with the given names below?

 

1 - Jack   __

2 - Henry   __

3 - Ray   __

4 - Gilbert   __

5 - Chuck   __

6 - Mike   __

7 - Phillips   __

8 - Allen   __

9 - Guy   __

 

See answers below. 


Quizzes from vintage electronics magazines such as Popular Electronics, Electronics-World, QST, and Radio News were published over the years - some really simple and others not so simple. Robert P. Balin created most of the quizzes for Popular Electronics. This is a listing of all I have posted thus far.
