J.L. Miller Company, Beloit, Wisconsin

We know the company yet only by a folder "Mercury 32 volt D.C. farm radio for 1935 and 1936". It says: "Manufactured and Guaranteed by J. L. Miller Company Beloit, Wisconsin, USA."


In said folder from 1935/1936 we find the models Mercury Imperial Model 9-32C, Mercury Ambassador Model 7-32C, Mercury Alladin Model 5-32T, Mercury Berkley Model 9-32T and Mercury Beaumont Model 7-32T.

Since in Pre-War Consoles; Stein, 2000 there is pictured a model Mercury Ambassador, chassis 7-32 and a Mercury Imperial, chassis 9-32 for "The Midwest Radio Co, Cincinnati", we may assume that perhaps Miller only made the power supply. Midwest has used the same combination for the naming of chassis, using numbers like tube-year (maybe year). We need more proof for this assumption from ads, folders, flyers etc.
