Electrical Experimenter (04:11) March 1917

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"In 1893, Dr. Nikola Tesla described in a magazine article the remarkable effects upon himself and his assistants resulting from their exposure to the action of alternating currents of exceedingly high-voltage and frequency. He prophesied that when electrical oscillations were fully understood and applied by physicians that a universal healing agent would have been obtained--one which would so increase the vital energy and resistive reaction of the human body as to enable it to throw off all disease."
This is the March 1917 issue of Electrical Experimenter. The cover story is “Electric Flyer Makes 500 Miles An Hour” and describes a possible future high-speed train technology. Another article describes a lawsuit between the magazine and inventor Lee DeForest, plus there are several radio articles, an article on geothermal energy, and an article on Electricity and Life concerning the application of high-frequency energy to the human body.
