Roy A. Weagant

Roy A. Weagant studied physics under Sir Ernest Rutherford and first became interested in radio through witnessing some of his experiments with Hertzian waves. He gained engineering experience with the Montreal Light, Heat & Power Co., the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Co., and the De Laval Steam Turbine Co. He took up commercial wireless work in 1908, and entered the service of the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Co. of America in 1912, where he soon rose to the position of chief engineer. He is a fellow of the Institute of Radio Engineers and a former member of its board of directors and standardization committee. He is the inventor of a novel method of eliminating static interference. He was born at Morrisburg, Ontario, Canada, and was educated at Stanstead College, Stanstead, Quebec, and at McGill University, Montreal. He was graduated in 1905 as an electrical engineer. At present he is an engineer with the Radio Corporation of America.

W. C. White

There are very few men in this country who really understand vacuum tubes. W. C. White is one of them. Nine years of his life have been devoted to the development, design, and engineering of vacuum tubes in the laboratories of the General Electric Co. A number of very valuable patents have been issued in his name. The work of Mr. White is well known in the radio field and he has earned for himself an enviable reputation.

Mr. White was born in Brooklyn in 1890. He received the degree of electrical engineer from Columbia University in the class of 1912.
