Throughout the 20's an beyond there have been different radio clubs in Rhode Island. The first seen was in April of 1923 called the Progressive Radio Club of Rhode Island. The clubs first meeting was Friday April 29th where they elected officers, G. Frederick Aiken, President, Ernect J. Plummer, Vice President, George Broater, Treasurer, Robert Perkins, Secretary, Herbert Barney, Cheir Operator. The Board of Engineers elected were E. J. Plummer, G F. Aiken and Herbert Barney. Robert McGinness was elected head of the advisory board. A new quarters for the organization will be ready soon and a high power transmitter set will be installed there.

How long the blub lasted reamins to be seen. They did hold a dance on June 5th, 1923 and announce a Radio Orchestra.

The next organized club that we see comes over 5 years later when the Brown University Radio Club changes it's name to The Rhode Island Radio Club in November of 1928. The president C Newton Kraus said the name change was necessary due to many members not being Brosn University Students. The club continured to meet in the Engineering Building of the University.

I guess the name Progressive is appropriate as much of the early discussion of the club is around the subject of television.
