The Hagley Library acquired David Sarnoff’s papers when the Sarnoff Library closed a few years ago. They just finished cataloguing the collections and invite researchers to check out the results: “General” Sarnoff was head of RCA for decades and, indeed, a Brigadier General in the Signal Corps during WWII. He and RCA worked hand-in-hand with the US military to develop all sots of technology, from radar screens to drones, and RCA also helped the American Forces Radio Service establish it’s first TV station at Limestone air base in Maine in 1953 (I know, I know, I’m obsessed with AFRTS/AFN!). Long story short, there should be much in that collection for our members to examine!
