1927: The All-American Radio Corporation and The Mohawk Corporation were pioneers in the field when radio first became universally recognized. In 1927, these two well established firms united to form the "The All-American Mohawk Corporation". Early in 1929 the Rudolph Wurlitzer Manufacturing Company, organized since 1856, took over the production of Lyric Radios, which insured to this product the benefit of a tradition born two hundred years ago, in Germany, where the Wurlitzers were makers of fine violins.
E.N.Rauland left All American Mohawk and established his own "Rauland Corporation", which was bought in 1948 by Zenith, then running as picture-tube-making subsidiary for many years.

All-American Mohawk
Konrad Birkner † 12.08.2014

Zunächst getrennte Firmen (beide gegründet 1920) wurde All-American 1922 zur AG.

Nach zunächst florierendem Geschäft (Gewinne 1923: $96.000; 1924: $365.000) ging es abwärts mit All-American (Gewinn 1925 nur noch $47.000; Verluste 1927: über $1,2Mio).

Obwohl Mohawk bereits 1924 einen Mehrkreiser mit Einknopfabstimmung auf den Markt brachte und gut verkaufte, vereinigten sie sich 1927 mit Wurlitzer. Eine Fabrikerweiterung brachte die Fertigungskapazität auf 850 Geräte pro Tag. Im März 1928 wurde Mohawk von All-American erworben, der Name wurde nun "All-American Mohawk Corp." 1928 verlor Mohawk einen Streit um die Marke "Mohawk" an eine gleichnamige Firma. Im November 1934 war die Firma bankrott.
