The company was started as Radio Shack in 1921 in Boston, Massachusetts, by two brothers, Theodore and Milton Deutschmann, who wanted to provide equipment for the cutting-edge field of amateur, or ham, radio. The Radio Shack name was taken from the name of the small structure that housed a ship's radio equipment at the time. ("Radio Shack" also refers to the room where a ham has his/her equipment.
