5. An Interview with Harold Beverage

5. An Interview with Harold Beverage

Richard Brewster
2nd edition, 2007

  • “So I had decided when I was about 10 years old that I was going to be a radio engineer. I wasn’t going to pitch hay and shovel manure all my life on the farm. That was the beginning. When I went to the University of Maine, I took my receiver with me and I happened to copy some messages from the Titanic before she hit the iceberg.”
  • Such were some early experiences of the man who went on to invent the Beverage antenna. Along the way Beverage worked with the likes of Alexanderson, Sarnoff, Marconi, Armstrong, de Forest, and Zworykin.
  • We are grateful to PARS first president for recording Beverage’s memories right from the source.
