Tesla is preceded in greatness only by Michael Faraday who in 1831 rocked the scientific world with his discovery that magnetism can produce electricity, if it is accompanied by motion. Faraday discovered the principle, but not how to make it power the world; Tesla alone accomplished this singular feat. Tesla is one of only two Americans to have a unit of electrical measurement named in his honor. Names for units of electrical measurement are derived by using the names of scientists who made the greatest contributions in electrical science, forming perhaps the most elite group in the world. Throughout the entire history of electrical science only fifteen men worldwide have received this honor. Tesla is one of these great men. In addition, Tesla received fifteen honorary degrees from famous universities worldwide, including Yale and Columbia in the United States. He also received fourteen Awards of Merit from other world class groups. Dr. David L. Goodstein, Vice Provost and Professor of Physics at California Institute of Technology, calls Tesla one of the "Saints of Science" and equates him to Leonardo Da Vinci. Tesla is the greatest inventor the world has ever forgotten. He is also the greatest inventor the Smithsonian has swept under the carpet. The Smithsonian's curator essentially credits Edison for our worldwide system of electricity. He also credits Marconi for the invention of radio. This is a deliberate assault on factual history and needs to be challenged. The United States Patent Office and the U.S. Supreme Court view things a little differently over the much distorted history the Smithsonian publicizes. Tesla holds over forty U.S. patents (circa 1888) covering our entire system of Polyphase Alternating Current (AC). These patents are so novel that nobody could ever challenge them in the courts. The Direct Current (DC) system Edison used in his much touted Pearl Street generating station was invented by others before his time; he merely copied the work of others to promote his business enterprise. . . and the Smithsonian wants you to believe he was America's 'King of Electricity.' There is simply no evidence to support this claim. The U.S. Supreme Court, in a landmark decision dated June 21, 1943, Case No. 369, overturned Marconi's basic patent for the invention of radio because Tesla's patent on the four-tuned circuit predated Marconi's patent. Marconi had simply copied Tesla's work.<p>

There is a teacher named John W. Wagner who thinks that the Smithsonian Institute is playing favorites. After studying the remarkable life of Nikola Tesla, Wagner, along with his third grade class, started a campaign to educate the world about the obscure electrical genius from Yugoslavia. Wagner and his class wrote many letters to important people asking for their support. A former student persuaded her father, an accomplished sculptor, to create a bust of Tesla for their class. A Third Grade requirement is to learn cursive handwriting, so their class work now had a purpose...writing letters to raise money for their Tesla bust. Unfortunately, most people had never heard of Nikola Tesla. And those who had, seemed not to want to listen. In fact, when the bust of Tesla was finished, Wagner and his class of eager students offered it to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. Dr. Bernard S. Finn, (Curator of the Division of Electricity and Modern Physics) refused, claiming he had no use for the bust. They could not understand why the Smithsonian would have no use for a $6,000 bust of such a great American and world-class scientist. After all, Tesla was no slouch. Much of our modern technology owes its beginnings to Tesla. In 1882 he made the discovery that changed the world ! harnessing the awesome power of Alternating Current (AC). In 1888 Tesla obtained U.S. patents covering an entire system of polyphase AC that remains unchanged in principle today. Tesla then promptly sold all of his patents to George Westinghouse, an acquisition that made the Westinghouse Company the giant it is today. Westinghouse and Tesla were consummate friends, but after Westinghouse died in 1913, the company forgot about its chief benefactor and Tesla fell victim to hard times. Tesla died January 7, 1943, alone, and all but forgotten, in a New York hotel room, paid for by a meager stipend provided by the Yugoslavian government. Today, industries prosper and flourish, the world surges from the power his fertile mind created, radios blare with news and music, their transmission made possible by his great intellect, all telling us that the forgotten genius, Nikola Tesla, was here.
