1933 – Mr. Ohm Kilowatt – Earl Kent (American)

Portsmouth Times 21 Feb 1933 p8

TECHNOCRATIC MAN OF 1940?—This conception of the machine age product by youthful Earl Kent, 21, of Carthage, Miss., "walks, talks, smokes cigarettes and spits fire". Kent, the inventor, is pictured with it in Los Angeles. Betty Davis, young saleswoman who "made a sale" to the robot is telling him that the change soon will be here.
