First demonstration of radio at Indiana University
This image appears on page 11 of the March 10, 1922 edition of The Indiana Alumnus. The caption reads, in part: "CLASS IN UNIVERSITY HEARS GALLI-CURCI BY WIRELESS TELEPHONE. A novel method of education in music has been introduced at Indiana University in the form of grand opera by wireless for students in the course in modern opera. Amplifying instruments have been installed at the Indiana University wireless station for receiving nightly concerts of the Chicago Grand Opera Company, and students are here shown listening to Galli Curci in a recent performance of 'Lakme.' The evening concert opened with a lecture on wireless by Dr. R. R. Ramsey...So far as known, Indiana University is the only educational institution to make this use of the wireless. The Indiana University station picks up not only the concerts by Mary Garden's opera company in Chicago, but also wireless concerts sent out from Pittsburgh, Newark, N.J., Denver, Oklahoma City, and Wichita, Kansas."
