Name: Spartan, Div. of Magnavox    (USA)  
Abbreviation: spartan
Products: Model types
Summary:

Spartan Division of Magnavox, not to be confused with Sparton (Sparks&Withington)!

The Spartan division of Magnavox was formed in 1956 when part of the Sparks-Withington Co. (which sold radios and televisions under the "Sparton" brand) was sold to Magnavox. Note the subtle change in spelling that occured upon transfer to Magnavox. Although the spelling changed slightly, the Spartan logo (see below) is virtually identical to the Sparton logo previously used by Sparks-Withington. Sparks-Withington also officially changed its name to "Sparton Corp." in 1956; hence the need to distinguish "Spartan" from "Sparton."

The last Spartan-branded product shown in Sams Photofacts is in 1959, and it is likely that the brand was discontinued at that time.
