Nikola Tesla

“Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 in what is now Croatia to Serbian parents Milutin and Djuka Tesla. (…)

After graduation, Tesla worked for the Continental Edison Company in Paris. In 1884, he went to New York and immediately took a job with Edison, who recognized Tesla’s abilities but did not want to support his work on arc lighting. (…)

Along with Edison, Tesla was popularized by the press as an electrical wizard. Images of the inventor sitting calmly beneath dazzling displays of electricity became common sights.”
