Electrical Experimenter (06:12) April 1919

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"I never can forget the three years I passed at their home. No fortress in time of war was under a more rigid discipline. I was fed like a canary bird. All the meals were of the highest quality and deliciously prepared but short in quantity by a thousand percent. The slices of ham cut by my aunt were like tissue paper. I had a voracious appetite and suffered like Tantalus. But I lived in an atmosphere of refinement and artistic taste quite unusual for those times and conditions."
This is the April 1919 issue of Electrical Experimenter. This special Nikola Tesla issue features the third installment of Tesla’s 6-part series for the magazine. It also includes a second article by Tesla, “The Moon’s Rotation,” and two articles by Dr. Lee De Forest.
