At Christmas 2016, I started volunteering at the Antique Wireless Association, where I develop hands-on workshops and content for the Museum’s educational programs. Founded in 1952, its collection of early wireless, radio, TV and communications technologies is outstanding.
Given all that has been done around the world to preserve the history of RF and microwaves, it seemed like a good idea in 2018 to contribute to the preservation of history surrounding electromagnetic waves of higher frequency.
Currently, my interest is centered on 20th-century hardware and its impact. These informal and unordered pages will be used to highlight people and items in optics, imaging, lasers, and photonics. Some will receive rigorous treatment, but the vast majority will be snapshots that interest me.
