No, not at all.  You are correct that the company was originally 
Hildreth and Rogers.  But by the time WLAW came onto the scene, it 
was the Rogers family (led by Alexander Rogers and then his son 
Irving Rogers) who were the most directly involved with radio. Every 
story in the newspapers, including in the Eagle and Tribune papers, 
spoke of the Rogers family's commitment to radio broadcasting.  The 
Hildreths?  Not so much.
