Shure was founded by Sidney N. Shure in 1925 as "The Shure Radio Company", selling radio parts kits several years after completely manufactured radios became commercially available.
In 1931, Shure and engineer Ralph Glover began development of the first Shure microphone, and the following year, the Model 33N Two-Button Carbon Microphone was introduced, making Shure one of only four microphone manufacturers in the U.S. Shure's first condenser microphone, crystal microphone, and microphone suspension support system (for which they received their first patent) were all introduced that same decade. In 1939, Shure introduced the Model 55 Unidyne Microphone, which went on to become one of the world's most recognized microphones.
For more than 60 years, Mrs. Shure has served as an inspiration to all Shure Associates, past and present.
She was a role model for Shure's Core Values and basic principles, created by her husband that have guided the Company.
Sandy LaMantia, Shure's Chief Executive Officer stated, "We have had the privilege of working with a truly extraordinary woman. Our Company and many charitable and cultural organizations have benefited from her thoughtfulness and generosity.
"I am confident that the legacy left to us by Mr. and Mrs. Shure will continue to endure in our hearts and in our minds. That is exactly the way Mr. and Mrs. Shure would want it to be."
