Electrical Experimenter (06:09) January 1919

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Nikola Tesla, in the opinion of the authorities, today is conceded to be the greatest inventor of all times. Tesla has more original inventions to his credit than any other man in history. He is considered greater than Archimedes, Faraday, or Edison. His basic, as well as revolutionary, discoveries for sheer audacity have no equal in the annals of the world. His master mind is easily one of the seven wonders of the intellectual world."
The January 1919 issue of Electrical Experimenter features the cover story “A New Aerial Smoke Barrage.” Also, Hugo Gernsback introduces the upcoming six-part series to be written by Nikola Tesla, “Nikola Tesla and His Inventions,” and an article by Tesla in this issue titled, “The Effect of Statics on Wireless Transmission.”
