Dear Donors:

Speaking for the family of Nikola Tesla and for the Society that honors his name, I wish to commemorate the dedication of your gift of the bust of Nikola Tesla to St. Sava Cathedral. I am gratified that you have thought to honor the man for whom I have labored for the past thirty-odd years to restore his name to his proper place in world technological and social history. Your generosity is very much appreciated.

I also wish to reflect on the artistic skill that sculptress Marina Zivic has exhibited in transforming her genuine respect and love for Nikola Tesla into her creation of this work of art.

I want to thank Cathedral Dean Very Reverend Father Djokan Majstorovic for his dignified dedication program. And to thank the Cathedral congregation for their support that brought event into being.

Your bust of Nikola Tesla is now established in a proper and publicly accessible place in the City where he lived and worked.

You may take great satisfaction in providing an excellent example of an American of Serbian ethnicity who demonstrated world leadership in the current context of world difficulties for Serbs.

My most sincere congratulations to you all.

William H. Terbo, Executive Secretary TMSav 070226
