RE: Perhaps right, definitely partially wrong.

Of course now I have to look at the pertinent documents, patents, etc. again.

Walker was certainly aware of Malme's work. His JAES article from November 1980, discussing the ESL-63, lists Malme's JAES article from Jan. 1959 in the Reference section. I would guess Walker would have been aware of any pertinent ideas or developments in the field of electrostats.

His Wire World article from May 1955 references Hunt's work with constant-charge. The benefits of the approach was a significant part of the article. The G.B. Patent claims a speaker using the constant-charge principle. Did that mean he could claim patent infringement if others used constant-charge? I don't know patent law is nothing I worry about. Not much new in my world!

Walker was always open about his ideas and how they were developed. Most things are bits and pieces of other's ideas that come together in a new perhaps novel way.
