The history of International Radio Corp ( Kadette):

Charles Verschoor started the company in Ann Arbor, Mi, in the mid 1920's. Charles A. Verschoor was born in 1888 in Dundee, Michigan, about 25 miles south of Ann Arbor. Verschoor studied at both Michigan State University and the University of Michigan and as a young man, he worked in the drafting department of the Burroughs Adding Machine Company.

During World War I, Verschoor worked as a civilian in the War Department, where he organized Army motor pools and trained drivers and mechanics. At the conclusion of the war he wrote automotive manuals and sold automobile parts. Verschoor's automotive parts enterprise operated under the name Precision Parts.

By the mid 1920's he has decided to try his hand at manufacturing radios. Vershoor's first radios set, the Arbor Phone, what a simple battery-operated tuned radio frequency (TRF) receiver resembling an early Atwater Kent. It was a serviceable radio marketed as a lower-cost alternative to the big-name radio brands of its day.

In 1931 one of his staff was spraying lacquer on a radio case when a fire broke out on the spraying compressor. The fire spread quickly and the entire plant was distorted including all his stock.

It was from this fire that the company reformed as 'Kedette'. Funding was put together to rebuild the business with the help for the local town government in order to provide employment for the locals already suffering from the Great Depression.

The Kedette brand was very much a success but wasn't enough to save the company which closed in 1941.
