About the Author:
Ian L. Sanders grew up in Harrow, north-west London. His involvement with vintage wireless dates from the early 1970s while studying electrical engineering at Cardiff University, Wales, where he was awarded B.Eng. (first-class honours) and Ph.D. degrees. Moving to the United States in 1977, he has made Northern California’s Silicon Valley his home since 1979. In a career spanning over thirty years, Ian held a number of executive positions in the computer data storage industry, including the founding of a new magnetic disc development and manufacturing company. His work resulted in sixteen patents in the field of magnetic computer memory technology and over sixty technical publications. Since retiring from “hi-tech,” Ian devotes much of his time to the documentation of the history of radio, focusing on the early broadcast period. In addition to the Castle Ridge Press series, he has authored numerous journal articles on various aspects of wireless history, published on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2006, he was the recipient of the British Vintage Wireless Society’s Duncan Neale Award in recognition of his definitive, five-volume series chronicling early British crystal receivers of the 1920s.
Ian is a member of the Antique Wireless Association of the United States and the British Vintage Wireless Society.
