RCA Annual Reports:
The Radio Corporation of America, or RCA from 1968, issued annual reports to its shareholders every year from 1920 through 1985. These provide prospective and current investors with legally required financial data as well as information on the company's current activities and future prospects. David Sarnoff wrote or revised much of the material from the late 1920s through the 1940s. Over time one can follow the evolution of RCA's principal businesses, depending on internal interests and external factors. One can follow the company's fortunes depending on the quality and graphics of the reports, and the way corporation reflected the broader American culture, particularly in the changing graphic designs of the 1960s. Original copies in near-mint condition are available for all years but 1943 and 1976.
