Small set of papers originally belonging to radio operator Harold Atkinson, including a typed transcript of the broadcast
of the championship fight between Carpentier and Dempsey (1921) from the radio telephone installed at the Fairmont Hotel in
San Francisco, through co-operation of the San Francisco Bulletin and the Leo J. Meyberg Company.
From the limited information available in the papers, it would appear that Harold Atkinson was a commercial radio operator
in the early 1900s, and worked for The Holt Manufacturing Company, and possibly Haller-Cunningham/Leo J. Meyberg. The transcript
on Meyberg letterhead suggests that Atkinson may have participated in the Fairmont (6XG) radiotelephone broadcast of the Dempsey-Carpentier
fight. According to the July 1921 issue of Pacific Radio News, "all radio experimenters within range of 6XG are requested
to listen in at 10 a.m. when a musical program will be in progress. The first returns will probably reach San Francisco at
11 a.m. and immediately upon receipt of same they will be broadcasted from the Fairmont."
