Electrical Experimenter (03:10) February 1916

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"The telephone has become such a matter-of-fact apparatus that to-day none of us hardly ever stop to realize that it is possible that less than 40 years ago the telephone was purely a laboratory device of few and doubtful virtues. Men there were, and highly educated ones at that, who scoffed at Alexander Graham Bell's "musical ear," as it was at one time called. Mr. Watson lived to see the telephone on practically every man's desk and on the wall of nearly every dwelling in this country and abroad."
This is the February 1916 issue of Electric Experimenter magazine. The cover story is “The Electric Gyro-Cruiser.” This issue also includes a work of fiction, “The Shirikari Tentacle,” an article on new De Forest radio apparatus, and a celebration of 40 years of the telephone.
