Peterson Electro-Musical Product, Inc.

Richard Peterson originally became involved in the church organ industry back in 1948 when his love for the pipe organ and his enthusiasm for electronics, which at the time was centered around vacuum tubes, led him to become a partner in founding the Haygren Organ Company. Haygren was a small company based in Chicago which ultimately would build about fifty electronic church organs through^ 1953. In the earliest days of a brand new technology called "solid state", Dick Peterson recognized that transistors provided opportunities for the organ industry, not only for use in electronic sound generation circuits, but for improving the economics and reliability of the many control functions required in all organs.
