Leland I. Anderson is a technical writer and electrical engineer who
lives in Denver, Colorado. His long-time interest in Nikola Tesla
took root in the early 1950s, and his activities since then have
resulted in his recognition as one of the world's foremost Tesla
historians. He founded the Tesla Society and edited the Tesla
Society Newsletter for many years, beginning in the 1950s. His
works include the monographs Priority in the Invention of Radio,
Tesla vs. Marconi and Ball Lightning & Tesla's Electric
Fireballs, and the books Nikola Tesla On His Work With
Alternating Currents, Nikola Tesla—Lecture Before the New York
Academy of Sciences, April 6, 1897, and Nikola Tesla's
Teleforce & Telegeodynamics Proposals. [Source:
