Sarnoff Company Profile

The Sarnoff Corporation is the successor organization to the David Sarnoff Research Center and the RCA Laboratories in Princeton, New Jersey. General Order S-56 of the Radio Corporation of America, issued March 5, 1941, mandated that "All research, original development and patent and licensing activities of the Corporation and its Associated Companies will be consolidated in RCA Laboratories which will be responsible for all such work in the future." Six days later the corporation completed purchase of the 260 acres of farmland on Route 1 in Princeton that would serve as the site for the new center. RCA chose Princeton for two primary reasons. It was equidistant from the RCA Victor and RCA Radiotron divisions in Camden and Harrison, New Jersey, where most of the corporation’s manufacturing took place. It was also a relatively short drive on Route 1 from NBC and corporate headquarters at Rockefeller Center in New York City. Construction began August 8, and on September 27, 1942, the laboratories opened with a staff of 125 scientists and engineers.As the General Order indicates, RCA had maintained research facilities elsewhere throughout its history. Within a year of its foundation in 1919, engineers began publishing papers and organizing the study of long-range radio communications. In 1922, the corporation hired Alfred Goldsmith as consulting head of Research Department while he taught electrical engineering at the City College of New York. Two years later, Goldsmith led a crew of engineers, technicians, and scientists to the new Technical and Test Laboratory opposite Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx in New York City. There they tried to maintain quality control and standardization of the vacuum tubes and radios manufactured by General Electric and Westinghouse Companies and marketed by RCA. Between 1930 and 1932, David Sarnoff re-organized RCA as an independent company that manufactured as well as marketed electronic technologies.
