Dan Mrkich European Research Trip

In September, Society Executive Board member Mr. Dan Mrkich traveled to London, Prague, Budapest, Strasbourg and Paris researching his new book Tesla’s European Years. Mr. Mrkich has completed Part Two The Family, Childhood and Youth. Part Two covers the history of the area of Tesla’s birth from the 16th Century to the modern era, his family history, his young life and his several returns to the area from his schooling, work and work in America. (Part One Education and Early Work is available by order from the Society.) Tesla’s fame in Europe is substantially better recognized than it is in North America. (A page from the Prague telephone directory shows 20 firms using the name “Tesla.”)
