Electrical Experimenter (06:10) February 1919

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Not until I attained manhood did I realize that I was an inventor. I had a brother who was gifted to an extraordinary degree--one of those rare phenomena of mentality which biological investigation has failed to explain. His premature death left my parents disconsolate. Anything I did that was creditable merely caused my parents to feel their loss more keenly. So I grew up with little confidence in myself."
This issue of Electrical Experimenter is from February 1919. It includes the first installment of a six-part series written by Nikola Tesla exclusively for Electrical Experimenter, “My Inventions.” Also included is a second article by Tesla, “Famous Scientific Illusions.”
