Caption: Tesla with the boxing brothers Zivic, 1940s. Serb-US physicist and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla (second from left, 1856-1943), in his eighties, in his New York hotel with the Croat boxing brothers Zivic. From left to right, the brothers are Eddie, Pete and Fritzie. Tesla was educated at Graz and Prague, but in 1884 he emigrated to the USA. Tesla carried out research that led to key advances in areas such as alternating current power generation and transmission. The SI unit of magnetic flux density is named in his honour. His early inventions were successful, but by the 1920s he was essentially bankrupt and running up unpaid hotel bills. From 1934, he lived in the Hotel New Yorker, with bills paid by his former employer Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company.
