Electrical Experimenter (05:07) November 1917

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"The women in America are rapidly coming to the front in military affairs, as with Miss Elizabeth Rickard, first radio graduate of Hunter College, New York City. Special instructors have been provided so that the girls who graduate here are fully equipped to take up commercial or naval duties. The U. S. Navy Department has intimated that women radio operators may be placed in charge of land stations, and in this way relieve badly needed men operators for active duty on board ships or abroad."
This is the Nobember 1917 issue of Electrical Experimenter. The cover story is “Seeing Wireless Signals. Additional stories include using electricity to grow plants faster, using electromagnetism to detect metals in the ground, and the first woman radio operator to graduate Hunter College.
