Nikola Tesla
October 13, 1933

Tesla (10 July 1856 - 7 January 1943) was a Serbian-American inventor,
mechanical engineer, and electrical engineer. He was an important contributor 
to the birth of commercial electricity, and is best known for his many
revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th
and early 20th centuries. Tesla's patents and theoretical work formed the basis of
 modern alternating current (AC) electric power systems, including the polyphase
system of electrical distribution and the AC motor. This work  helped usher in
the Second Industrial Revolution.

"Electric power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive the
world's machinery without the need of coal, oil, or any other fuel." Nikola Tesla
