You say Capacitor, I say Condenser...

John M
I have on occasion tried to remember when the terminology change occurred (to no avail).

Thanks to this site I now know definitively, from the most authoritative source I can imagine, Allied Radio Catalog index pages:

1951 and earlier lists Condensers and no Capacitors.

1952 and later lists Capacitors and no Condensers.

Thanks for clearing that up!
