Reception honouring Tesla, 1937. Serb-US physicist and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), standing at left, receiving an award at a reception held on 10 July 1937 in New York, USA. Tesla is being presented with the Order of the White Lion (1st degree) from the Czechoslovakian Minister Vladimir Hurban. On the same occasion, he was awarded the Order of the White Eagle (1st Degree) of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Tesla was educated at Graz and Prague, but in 1884 he emigrated to the USA. 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.
