|Associate Advertising Professor Dr. Jay Hamilton|
Grady College advertising associate professor Dr. Jay Hamilton participated in a program and reception at the Special Collections Library on Feb. 21, celebrating the opening of the Pennington Radio Collection, which includes golden age radios and related artifacts. Hamilton discussed radio as a disruptive technology in the early 20th century.
The Pennington Radio Collection features tube radios, external speakers and other artifacts dating from 1913-1933. Fascinating early radio designs by Atwater Kent, Alfred Grebe, and Lee De Forest are on display alongside classics from Western Electric, RCA, Philco and Crosley. The Pennington Radio Collection was donated to the Libraries by the late Claude Pennington.
