Rider (1900–1985) was an American radio engineer best known as publisher and author of over 125 books for radio and television servicing. He founded John F. Rider Publisher Inc. , and was responsible for annual volumes of the Perpetual Troubleshooter's Manual from 1931 to 1954." "Considered by radio collectors and restorers as his most important work. Rider made great strides to work with as many radio manufacturers as possible to get any servicing information that was available. As a result, the yearly bound volumes got quite large (sometimes over 600 pages). Manufacturers were represented were mainly from the United States. Often many uncommon and obscure models were listed. This gave others like Supreme Publications owner, Morris N Beitman an opportunity to provide a source of more common models, cutting the size and cost of obtaining service literature. Rider stopped publishing the yearly Perpetual Troubleshooter's Manual in 1954 for many reasons. One reason was the introduction of television in 1946. Rider started a Perpetual Troubleshooter's Manual series for television. The television bound volumes became too large and there were many production changes for the models listed that Rider did not always have the opportunity to update or publish supplements."
