Electrical Experimenter (06:11) March 1919

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"From childhood I was compelled to concentrate attention upon myself. This caused me much suffering but, to my present view, it was a blessing in disguise for it has taught me to appreciate the inestimable value of introspection in the preservation of life, as well as a means of achievement. The pressure of occupation and the incessant stream of impressions pouring into our consciousness thru all the gateways of knowledge make modern existence hazardous in many ways."
This is the March 1919  issue of Electrical Experimenter. It includes Part 2 of Nikola Tesla’s six-part series “My Inventions” along with an additional article “Tesla’s Egg of Columbus.” Also included is an article by Dr. Lee De Forest, “How I Invented the Audion” and another article about multiplex telephony.
