Electrical Experimenter (07:01) May 1919

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Ideas came in an uninterrupted stream and the only difficulty I had was to hold them fast. The pieces of apparatus I conceived were to me absolutely real and tangible in every detail, even to the minutest marks and signs of wear. I delighted in imagining the motors constantly running, for in this way they presented to the mind's eye a more fascinating sight. In less than two months I evolved virtually all the types of motors and modifications of systems which are now identified with my name."
This May 1919 issue of Electric Experimenter features the cover story “The Thought Recorder.” Also included are two articles by Nicola Tesla, including part four of his six-part series, “The Discovery of the Tesla Coil and Transformer.” Another article discusses tentative plans to build a future Holland Tunnel from New Jersey to New York City.
