A prominent American electronics company, RCA was founded in 1919 and was later acquired by General Electric in 1986, the same year Mr. Bowker retired. Upon his retirement, he spent 10 years traveling the country with his wife, visiting all 48 states.

Mr. Bowker began his career in broadcasting. He was instrumental in building a radio station in Middlebury, Vermont, in 1949.
