Galvin Manufacturing Corp.

September 25, 1928, Paul Calvin (Paul V. Galvin) and brother Joseph Calvin (Joseph Galvin) in Chicago, Motorola co-founded the predecessor: Galvin Manufacturing Company
Motorola started in Chicago, Illinois as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation (at 847 West Harrison Street) in 1928, with its first product being a battery eliminator. In 1930 Galvin Manufacturing Corporation introduced the Motorola radio, one of the first commercially successful car radios. Company founders Paul V. Galvin and Joseph Galvin created the brand name Motorola for the car radio - linking "motor" (for motorcar) with "ola" (which implied sound). Thus the Motorola brand was meant to indicate "sound in motion." The name "Motorola" was adopted in 1930, and the word has been used as a trademark since the 1930s.

“Picked up 19 bu apples that the wind blew off yesterday and cut two rows of shocks of corn.”

“Cut corn all day.  Martin Burke helped me this afternoon. Pleasant day.”

“Cut corn all day. The two Burkes helped me this forenoon but the old gentleman went home with a lame back at noon and the young man helped me until night. We have less than three rows of shocks to cut yet.  Heavy frost this morning.  Cut the corn some and potatoes very badly in some places.”
