Biographical notes:

Du Mont was an electrical engineer and television pioneer who worked for the Westinghouse Lamp Company, 1924-1928, and the DeForest Radio Company, 1928-1931, before establishing his own firm, Du Mont Laboratories Inc., to manufacture cathode ray tubes. The company began the production and sales of television receivers in the United States in 1937. After World War II, Du Mont was unable to compete effectively with other manufacturers. The company was sold to Fairchild in 1960 and Du Mont became a technical adviser to the new owner.
