March 1963 Popular Electronics Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

People old and young enjoy waxing nostalgic about and learning some of the history of early electronics. Popular Electronics was published from October 1954 through April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged. See all articles from Popular Electronics.

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. It is a good Friday afternoon challenge to help pass the time until the weekend begins. Enjoy.
