GenRad Banner

Welcome to the home page of the GR Historical Society. This site celebrates the history and accomplishments of the General Radio Company, one of America’s first equipment manufacturers for the radio and electronics industry.

Founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1915, GenRad provided the tools and instruments that allowed the electronics industry to burgeon into today’s giant that fills our lives with radio, TV, computers, cell phones, DVDs and all the other electronic products in our homes, businesses and automobiles.

GenRad also pioneered methods for product development, quality manufacturing and corporate responsibility that became the model for other companies to follow.

Special thanks to Henry P Hall for his assistance and material including his papers.

Additional information on GenRad history can be found on the HP Memory Project organization's site.
