Nikola Tesla: 1856 - 1943





William Terbo, closest living relative of Nikola Tesla and Chairman of the Executive Board of the Tesla Memorial Society, Inc., is scheduled speak at the Mid-America Science Museum on Wednesday and Thursday, March 11 &12, and at the Dallas Electric Club on Fridy, March 13.

The Mid-America Science Museum, associated with the Smithsonian Museum, is a 65,000 square foot facility located in one of the most beautiful areas in the state. The Museum exhibits over 80 examples of physical, electrical or mechanical equipment in nearly 60 presentation areas. A large number of these displays are of the hands-on variety that can be manipulated by Museum visitors. Among the most spectacular exhibits demonstrated by Museum staff daily are the Guinness World Record 1 million volt conical Tesla Coil and the 12-foot tall 40,000 volt climbing arc Jacob’s Ladder, so familiar to fans of both early (Frankenstein-type) horror and current dramatic movies.

Mr. Terbo’s remarks on the drama and personality of Nikola Tesla will be preceded by a 38-minute biographical movie on Tesla and followed by a Question & Answer session.

The Dallas Electrical Club, serving electric energy professionals of North Texas since 1913, is one of the oldest institutions of its kind in America. The Club has had a very long and respected history of monthly programs featuring invited speakers. Leading electric industry professionals discuss new technologies, regulations and business trends as well as areas of science and history. Nikola Tesla is an icon to all travelers in the field of electricity. Mr. Terbo will touch on areas of the personality of his grand uncle. Mr. Terbo will also discuss a private archive of Tesla correspondence that was instrumental in determining the selection of Tesla/Westinghouse Alternating Current for the 1893-96 Niagara Falls power generation system an archive unknown to industry historians.
