Kolster Radio Corporation
Item# 2542

The Kolster Radio Corporation was formed in 1926 as a merger of several wireless companies. It supplied the radio portion of Columbia radio-phonographs. The Mackay (Postal Telegraph) companies bought all their communication equipment from Kolster, and Kolster supplied a minimum of one-third of the wired radio apparatus used by wired Radio, Inc., a subsidiary of North American Company. The company went out of business in 1931 due to the depression. All of the company's assets were sold in 1931 to ITT for $3,000,000 and a new company called Kolster Radio Inc. was formed.
