Place: The Museum of Broadcast Technology, 144 Main Street, Woonsocket, RI 02895

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 country’s 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.)
