This Mills Radio Corp., Raleigh, NC outfit must date from late 1923 into maybe 1924. It seems to be only the fifth known surviving, branded, 'made in NC' broadcast band radio of the 1920s. It was found by a picker at a yard sale in Wilmington, NC in October 2019. He could offer no background on the set. A search of microfilmed Raleigh newspapers seems to indicate that, at that time, the newspapers must have been deliberately boycotting any news of the radio broadcast industry or taking any advertising mentioning radios for sale.... Regarding them as competition. 'outside ideas'.
