DID ALLIED RADIO PRODUCE A 1944-45 CATALOG?
Since I can not locate any Allied catalogs published during 1944-45, this includes sale and suppliment catalogs, I believe that they did not produce a catalog during this time period.
World War II began in September 1939 and lasted until September 1945. During that period, recycling was born with the government's encouragement. Economizing initiatives seemed endless as Americans were urged to conserve and recycle rubber, paper, and all sorts of metal (aluminum, brass, copper). Paper rationing and the war effort meant that almost no company printed a consumer catalog.
War demand for materials used in the production of weapons, ammunition, equipment and research for WWII was so great that pennies were made of steel instead of copper in 1943.
Copper was in such demand by the government for wiring circuits, it was unlikely that radios (and other electronic devices) containing copper circuits would have been available for consumer purchase. Radio manufacturers made their radios for military use. New cars weren't manufactured, as automobile production lines were devoted to the production of tanks.
If you can prove me wrong on this theory, please email me a copy of the 1944 or 1945 Allied catalog cover.
