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

Female RF Cafe visitors might be interested to learn from this "Within the Industry" column which appeared in the 1958 Radio & TV News magazine of Helen Staniland Quam being elected president of the Association of Electronic Parts & Equipment Manufacturers, Inc. She was the first woman to head a major trade group in the electronics industry. A couple pages away in the same issue carried a half-page advertisement for her Quam-Nichols Company. The company was a primary supplier of audio speakers for radio and television original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and for commercial loudspeaker installations. Sadly, other than a mention or two in vintage electronics magazines, there is not much about her accomplishments to be found on the Web. She evidently remarried and assumed the name Helen Staniland Quam Bean, and became president of the Atlanta Music Club.
