World Radio Corp in Providence, RI. This company also had an address in Boston. In 1926 their address was 121 Westminster St 1 and in 1927 their address was 103 Empire Street 2 and the manager was George Brutcher. 3 We find George Brutcher working for the Air-Line Radio Company in 1928. 4

World Radio Corp itself was started by President Ernest Henderson, 49, and Vice President & Treasurer Robert Lowell Moore, 50, partners since they were roommates at Harvard (and ate at the Washington Thompson's Spa). In 1918, they went into the radio business. Good sets were then selling for $240, but radio parts were cheap. With 10¢ store parts, they assembled their own sets, sold them for $89.50. By 1925, their World Radio Corp. had 30 stores in New England, was taking in a comfortable $1,000,000 a year. 5
