October 1945 Radio News

October 1945 Radio News
October 1945 Radio News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

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

Many of the technically-oriented magazines in the pre-post-war era were going all out with advertisements promising training for careers for servicemen in the post-war era. This one by National Schools in a 1945 issue of Radio News is a good example. By January of 1945, the attitude of people in America and Europe was that the end of World War II was imminent, and life would soon return to a peacetime normal state. There would be a lot of rebuilding to do in Europe that would drain tech companies of some desperately needed engineers, technicians, and assembly workers. In America, labor markets were flooded with workers hoping to exploit the skills learned and practiced while beating back the forces of Nazism, Fascism, Communism, Marxism, and other "isms." Institutions like National Schools offered opportunities for at-home training courses while others provided fully equipped campus facilities, including living arrangements.
