Alfred Powell Morgan (1889-1972) schrieb mehr als ein Dutzend Bücher über drahtlose Technik (1910-1943), gründete Adams-Morgan etwa 1910 als Versandhaus  für Funk-Bauteile.

Paul Forman Godley, der Entwickler des Paragon-Receivers, kam 1915 als Dritter hinzu, um dieses Gerät zu vermarkten.

1922 / 23 arbeiteten 50-100 Angestellte / Arbeiter in der Firma. Nach wirtschaftlichen Problemen wurde die Produktion Ende 1927 eingestellt.
