Eddy Marsh Company, like many other radio companies, started out in business doing something non-radio related. In this case Monotype. Montotype being a typesetting machine, that casts type in metal, one character at a time. The firts mention of the company found is from 1913.


Providence Journal January 31, 1913


One of the principals of the company seems to be William Sewall Marsh, printer from Providence, RI 1. Marsh holds a copyright for a composition, "Good copy, hoe to prepate it properly, how to make it fit the space, instructions to the typist."


1917

In 1919, 1920 and 1923 we find ads looking for a Compositor, A Typist, Type Corrector and a Linotype Operator.

And then at the end of 1920 we see their employees thanking them for their generous gifts.


Providence Journal December 28, 1920


There are also three entries in Monotype Magazine for the company during the 20's

Then in 1922 we see the start of their radio related products, Variable Condenser Kits, Die-Cut Fibers Discs for winding spider coils, Tuning Coilc Kits, Knock-out parts for unit type radio sets, battery boxes and a crystal receiver called the Edmar Radio Entertainer.
