Yes end did - The Nikola Tesla the Greatest Mind of our time, I can proudly say he was my inspiration for achievement on my own Patent in Fiber Optics "Quadruple Winding sensor". I was born just a few kilometers away from his birth place "Smiljan" and as I sad, it makes me a very proud to become a part of tiny little contribution to assign my name in the patent office of United States of America.

Thank goodness Mr. Wysock had the means and foresight to purchase these documents so they would be preserved and shared with Tesla enthusiasts and researchers. They provide a snapshot in time.
