Tesla Deported From Maribor
March 24th, 1879
Tesla was reported to Maribor police because he did not have a residence permit. Administrative proceedings were started immediately and Tesla was returned to Gospić under police guard.
Tesla's father, Milutin Tesla, contracts an unspecified illness and dies at age 60. The following day, he was given a "funeral liturgy fit for a saint," and was buried in the Jasikovac cemetery in Divoselo.
