Arthur A. Collins founded Collins Radio Company, 1933 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It designed and produced both shortwave radio equipment and equipment for the burgeoning AM radio broadcast industry. 

Collins was solicited by the military, the scientific community, and the larger AM radio stations for special equipment. 

Collins supplied the equipment to establish a communications link with the South Pole expedition of Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd in 1933.
