Nikola Tesla Books
Nikola Tesla's Residences, Laboratories, and Offices
This compilation of Nikola Tesla's residences, laboratories, and offices in America was accomplished by examining collections in the following public/institutional libraries and private collections: Tesla manuscript collection (including the seven reels of microfilmed correspondence received in 1961 from the Nikola Tesla Museum) and the John Hays Hammons, Jr., collection, Library of Congress; manuscript holdings of the Rare Book and Manuscript Library (Butler Library), and the Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library, Columbia University in the City of New York; manuscript holdings in the George H. Clark Radioana Collection and the William J. Hammer Collection, Archives Center, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution Libraries; manuscripts in Henry Ford Museum Libraries; manuscripts in the Lillian M. McChesney collection; and manuscripts in the collection of this compiler.
Because of the lack of documentation, especially in the later years, some chronology dates are uncertain. Corrections and additional information to fill in years, for which details are sparse, will be welcomed.
