Commentaires : Donor recounted that this television set was the first set on Prince Edward Island. It was presented to Mr. Arthur P. Arsenault in 1953 as first prize in the Hudson Sales contest. When Mr. Aresenault first received the television, reception in Charlottetown was practically nil. The Admiral Corporation was founded in 1934 by Ross David Siragusa as the Continental Radio and Television Corporation. Siragusa had sold his automobile and most of him home furnishings and invested $3,400 in his new company for the purpose of manufacturing radios. The company was a quick success. Within two years, the company's sales exceeded $2 Million, and by 1939 revenues topped $9 million. In December 1940 the company was incorporated in Delaware as the Admiral Corporation. The 1940's and early 1950's were among the best years for Admiral.
