IAEI Magazine debuted in March 1929 after the founding of the association in November 1928. (Considering how magazines were manually put together back in the day, they probably began working on the first issue around that time.] The original IAEI Magazine contained just twenty pages, with a combination of member news, meeting information, code updates, industry news items, and two electrical features:
- Talking Picture Equipment – Description of Circuits, Voltages Used and Methods of Installation. With this “NEW” emerging technology, what apparatus must be added to the ordinary motor-driven motion picture projector, in order to run talking pictures (page 9). Learn about the “new” safety provisions governing wiring in moving picture booths and more.
- High Tension Service In Chrysler Building, New York City (page 17) With the growing tendency toward the construction of higher buildings, with the rapidly extending use of alternating currents for buildings in the congest districts of large cities this article discusses the power supply for the NEW Chrysler building.
Thanks to the hard work of the team at Brainfiller.com, we now have a scanned copy of these original editions. Enjoy!
