QST for February 1956 in the Technical Topics section has a nice three page
write up on the use of Linear Amplifiers for AM. It starts on page 39.

 " This leads to the rule of thumb that on a.m. the carrier power output
that can be obtained from a linear amplifier is equal to half the rated
dissipation of the tube(s)."
