I have really enjoyed all the WW articles you have posted to your archive section.
Thanks so much for your efforts.

You, and others, might be interested to know that two letters(one by Peter Walker) were included in the March 1956 issue of WW which provided some constructive criticism of ESL distortion article.

Douglas, would you (or anyone else) have WW Sept 1947 ?

If so then I would like to suggest an article by J. Ellis in that issue as suitable to scan. The article is referred to in a book by Briggs and Garner, and google suggests the article title is 'Bass compensation—a system using negative feedback'. I understand the article includes an analysis of local anode-grid feedback for a triode.

Ciao, Tim

Apart from a few odds and ends my collection starts at 1950. I too would be interested to see stuff from the decade before.

Thank you for maintaining your site and posting this. My introduction to electronics was as a young boy, when my dad made a Philips kit for a transformerless tube amp, driving a 600 Ohm speaker. The amp and the schematics got lost in the almost 50 years since then, so it is really nice to read this article in WW. Walking on the sunny side of Memory Lane,

Vac
