Looking for the owners of this vintage Zenith Radio

Do you know someone who owned a radio like this:

Zenith radio

Click on the Zenith radio above to see the story that aired on KPTV

Will Barnett purchased this radio for $7.00 from an
elderly gentleman who lived at 109 NE Liberty
Avenue in Gresham, Oregon in about 1990. The
elderly gentlemen told Will that he obtained the
radio from a family of Japanese descent just
before they were interned at camp during WWII.

Records show that no neighbors of Japanese
descent lived on Liberty Avenue in the early

Could the Japanese family have lived further away,
or could the elderly gentlemen lived elsewhere in
1942? The search is on for the missing family who
used to own this Zenith radio. 


The Northwest Vintage Radio Society (NWVRS) is a 501(c)(3) educational membership
organization dedicated the preservation and enjoyment of vintage radios and antique wireless
