After his companion left the company, Clifford A. Harvey continued on his own, in 1933 Dick Mahler joined the Company.
The "Harvey Radio Labs" produced HF, VHF and UHF transceivers and transmitters as a low budget concurrent to Collins Radio Corp. Their equipment has been used by hams and commercial enterprises.
In 1940 John Wells joined the company, the name was changed to "Harvey - Wells Electronics Company" in march 1940. They produced equipment used for police communication, civil defence and the Navy.
After the war, within a range of ham band transceivers, Harvey - Wells produced the TBS-50 "Bandmaster". The company didn't make the step to single sideband transmitting technique and numbers of sets sold dropped.
In 1957, the company has been acquired by "Within Machine Works", the "Harvey Radio Labs" company still existed and became owner of broadcasting stations.
In 1940, the "Harvey - Wells" company has been sold by Mr Harvey to Frank Lyman, in 1944 as an offspring "Harvey of Cambridge" has been founded.
