Electrical Experimenter (03:08) December 1915

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"If the recent cabled reports be correct, every American will note with great satisfaction the awarding of this year's Nobel prize in physics to Thomas A. Edison and to Nikola Tesla. We are quite convinced that this year's choice of Edison and Tesla will not only be acclaimed in the United States, but in the world over. The awarding of the Nobel prize in a single year to these two world renowned inventors naturally leads to the question: Who is the greater man, Edison or Tesla?"
The December 1915 issue of Electrical Experimenter features an early science fiction cover named “A Canal Scene on Mars” and inside is another installment of Hugo Gernsback’s popular Baron Munchhausen stories. This one focuses on the then-famous canals of Mars. And inventor Dr. Lee de Forest writes an article on using Audion tubes for producing musical tones and shows a precursor of an electric organ.
