The history of Leich is as convoluted as it is interesting. It was formed as the Eureka Electric Company which moved to Chicago in 1898. In 1902 Eureka merged with the Advance Electric Company and subsequently moved to Genoa. In 1907 the company was sold and renamed The Cracraft-Leich Electric Co. The name was changed to Leich Electric in 1917, and in 1950s Leich was purchased GTE and became the first manufacturing subsidiary of that company. GTE and Automatic Electric merged in 1955 and Leich was maintained as an operating subsidiary of GTE until the early 1960s when operations were fully merged with the parent company. In 1989 GTE and AT&T finalized a joint ownership agreement and the name of the company was changed to AG Communications Systems. AT&T transferred it's majority ownership in AG Communications to Lucent Technologies (formerly Western Electric) in 1996 and as of 2003 Lucent is the sole owner AG Communications. Thus, long-ago competitors Western Electric, Automatic Electric and Leich are now effectively one company. The Leich model 90 was produced to combat the Western/Northern Electric model 202. The Leich did have a slight advantage in that an extension base was produced in order to accomedate a ringer without the need for a seperate ringer box. This phone of particular interest due to the inclusion of the above mentioned extention base with a ringer.
