Caption: Milutin Tesla (1819-1879), Serbian orthodox priest and father of Serb-US physicist and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla (1856-1943). The family lived in the village of Smiljan in what was then the Austrian Empire and is today in Croatia. Milutin Tesla and his wife Duka had five children (two sons and three daughters). Nikola Tesla was their fourth child. Tesla was also schooled in Gospic and Karlovac, with further studies at Graz and Prague. Milutin Tesla died in 1879, and in 1884 Nikola Tesla emigrated to the USA where he made key advances in areas such as alternating current power generation and transmission. A type of transformer is named for him (the Tesla Coil), as is the SI unit of magnetic flux density.
