GatesAir celebrates a rare business milestone this year as the company turns 100. Founded in 1922, Gates Radio Company was established in Quincy, Illinois by Henry and Cora B. Gates and their son, Parker, who at 14 was the company’s engineering visionary. Parker would later lead Gates Radio and Supply Company, which was sold to Harris Intertype in 1957 and later became a part of Harris Corporation. Shortly upon its divestiture from Harris, the Gates family name was returned to the company in honor of its roots. This photo essay offers visual highlights spanning nearly all decades of the company’s existence, many of which have never been published.
