|Stewart-Warner's electronic history dates back to the early 1920's as both an equipment and parts manufacturer. As an experienced automotive parts manufacturer from the early 1900's, they intended to make all the parts for their radios including the tubes. For obvious financial reasons that didn't work out, but there are some early tubes out there that they actually did make. They continued making electronics (Radios, TV, Comm Receivers etc) into the mid 1950's, but their tubes were supplied by regular quality manufacturers like the big three of RCA, GE or Sylvania. Of course they were re-labeled to Stewart-Warner.|
The Stewart Warner name is still active today as an instrument manufacturer.
