Electrical Experimenter (06:03) July 1918

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"We have been reading quite a good deal in the daily press about the possibility of an aerial attack on American cities by the Germans. Many people seem to think that raids are impending this year, while equally as many are skeptical about it. It is the purpose of this article to point out certain relevant facts relating to the above, and we will try here to show the technical aspect of the idea."
This issue of Electrical Experimenter is from July 1918. The cover story is “Will The Germans Bombard New York?” by Hugo Gernsback. Other articles include “Milestones in the Life of Thomas A. Edison,” a debate between steam vs. electric railroads, the advent of women engineers, and radium in the treatment of disease.
