[Victor Paulsen: see Anthology, Bulletins.]


Former KSFO radio engineer, Victor Perry Paulsen, aged 73, died Oct. 4th following 2 weeks of hospitalization for extensive kidney and liver problems.

Vic worked for KSFO between 1955 and 1976 and was a true pioneer whose experience spanned many facets of broadcasting.

In the 1920's he became an ardent radio experimenter and constructed a number of spark transmitters and developed an interest in the design & manufacture of vacuum tubes. S.F. T-V pioneer, Philo Farnsworth was among his frends.

After studying at the U. of Ca., Berkeley, Vic went to sea as a merchant marine wireless operator, served as a consultant to Dollar Steamship Co. in equiping its ships and finally serving as a disc jockey and air personality on San Francisco radio station KJBS.

When World War II broke out, Vic returned to the merchant marine making many trips in Liberty ships thru the North Atlantic. When hostilities ceased, Vic returned to KJBS where he and Frank Cope became popular as the nations first "disc jockies." Between KJBS and coming to KSFO, Vic served as the master-of-ceremonies on several Bay Area T-V programs.

Paulsen was also interested in spelling reform, belonged to the S.S.S. and had developed a system of reformed English spelling which he called TORSKRIPT.
