Founded in 1919 as a subsidiary of General Electric, The Radio Corporation of America was responsible for many key innovations in radio technology. In 1929 the company purchased the Victor Talking Machine Company, creating RCA Victor. RCA Victor became famous for its affordable radio tubes, and its iconic ‘His Masters Voice’ advertising campaign: Nipper the fox terrier, looking into a phonograph horn. After WW2, RCA went on to manufacture televisions.
