AES Oral History 045: Jerry B. Minter. (1913-2009) This is a fascinating look into the life of an extraordinary inventor who developed relationships with many leaders in the audio and electronics industries. Mr. Minter had a wide interest in audio and radio since early childhood in Texas, where he built PA systems and ham radio gear. A 1934 Engineering graduate from MIT, he helped found Measurements Corporation, Parsippany, NJ. Later, he was the president of Components Corporation in Denville, NJ. (1954). He ran a special-purpose record pressing business and developed a series of special audio test records, among many other fascinating projects. The Popular Science Hi-Fi Test Record of 1957 was extremely popular. Mr. Minter was a longtime member and past President of the AES, and in the early '60s recorded hundreds of multi-track musical performances. Mr. Minter holds 26 patents covering a wide range of technologies. Interviewed by Irv Joel. Edited by Harry Hirsch.
