Biographical history

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was a brilliant but eccentric Serbian-American inventor who discovered the basis of alternating current machinery and conducted experiments in wireless technology. In 1899-1900, at his laboratory in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Tesla discovered terrestrial stationary waves. In the 1970's a group of scientists came together as the International Tesla Society which aimed to unlock any secrets contained in Tesla's account of Colorado Springs experiments and compile all of Tesla's patents. Part of this effort was based in Winnipeg as the "Manitoba Research Group" from which this collection had its origin. The International Tesla Society ceased operation in 2000.

Custodial history

The fonds was donated to the University of Manitoba in 2002.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of translations and other reports related to the investigation of Tesla's work.
