    Event Description:

    The immediate aftermath of World War I saw both advances and declines in the world’s developing radio technologies.  In America, it included the emergence of an all-American radio company, the Radio Corporation of America (RCA).  On December 1, 1919, the nascent Radio Corporation comprised only five radio communication stations, and the partially completed Chatham station was one of them.  Under RCA, American innovation and technology would grow to ensure American supremacy in radio communication.  Ed Moxon, a Director of Chatham Marconi, radio historian and exhibit designer, chronicles his research into the transformative events of 1919.  This presentation expands upon this year’s new exhibit and reveals how government and industry joined to bring RCA into being, a century ago.

    Chatham Marconi Maritime Center is pleased to host its 2019 Summer Speaker Series, a summer-long series of lectures and presentations drawn from the resources of the Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum, the Summer Science program, and member-suggested topics related to our mission.  

    Location:

    Programs will be presented in its air conditioned Education Center at 831 Orleans Road, North Chatham MA 02650 (the large brick building on Route 28 opposite Ryder’s Cove) unless otherwise noted.   

    Seating space is limited.  If it appears that a particular talk may attract interest which would overwhelm Chatham Marconi’s limited seating capacity, the event may be moved to a larger nearby venue with as much advance notice provided as is possible.

    Date/Time Information:
    Thursday evening at 7:00 PM.
