>Hi Keith,
>My name is Lew Crosley.  My grandfather was Cincinnati industrialist
>Powel Crosley, Jr.  I am researching PC's life for a biography we are
>writing and also to obtain information and perhaps military radio sets
>for the Powel Crosley Museum of the Entrepreneur.
>It dawned on me recently that very little is known about the Crosley
>Radio Corporation's contribution to the war effort.  We have lots of
>info about the proximity fuze but that's about it.  For example, I've
>been told that Crosley manufactured spy radios, morale receivers and
>many other receivers, transmitters and transceivers for almost every
>branch of the service.  The really big one was the SCR-284 radio set
>which consists of the BC-654 transceiver and support equipment.
>I know next to nothing about any of this (shame on me) but I need to
>take a crash course.  Is there any way you and your friends can help?
>If you would like to learn more about Powel Crosley, Jr. check out the
>Crosley Automobile Club page
>Many thanks for your help.
