Curtis Mathes Marks 60th Anniversary


This year marks the 60th anniversary of the start of TV manufacturing by the Curtis Mathes Corporation. The company made many of the TVs that were the first sets to go in homes across the country. Like the 1961 Danish Modern model (pictured), the majority of its sets were made in Athens. From 1968 to 1988, the Curtis Mathes Corporation was the only fully American-owned electronics firm and the only American television manufacturer. The company sold to Enhanced Electronics in 1988. Although no longer manufacturing TVs, the Curtis Mathes brand is still used today with innovative LED lighting products. Learn more at
