  • Erik Kirkman Cole

E. K. Cole was born in 1901 in Prittlewell, Southend-on-Sea, Essex. He graduated from Southend Day Technical School and then completed a three-year apprenticeship. Cole and his future wife, Muriel Bradshaw, began making radios in 1924. He became famous for designing the so-called "battery eliminator", which allowed to power radios directly from the network. In 1931, he opened his own Bakelite factory, where he produced enclosures for radio receivers. During the Second World War, British radar systems are manufactured in its factories. E. K. Cole is an icon of the British electronics industry.
