Description
Continues the series making available primary documents relating to the Serbian-born American inventor Tesla (1856-1943) around whom something of a cult has developed. Nearly half of the volume is devoted to the transcript of a hearing over a patent dispute about radio transmission and remote control devices. Other documents include letters to and from him, photographs, and the text of patents relating both to remote control and the AND logic gate, which foreshadowed electronic computers.
