Dnaielle Shapiro presents the first biography of John Vassos, RCA's key consultant designer who shaped the look of modern technology. Vassos designed the first mass-produced television receiver, the TRK-12, which had its spectacular premier at the 1939 New York World's Fair. Other industrial designers may be more celebrated, but none were more focused on making radio and television attractive and accessible to millions of Americans.
