"We think of his contribution much oftener than that of Ampere and Ohm ... the induction motor and our power system are enduring monuments to Nikola Tesla."

Dr. E.F.W. Alexanderson (1878-1975) was an electrical engineer and television pioneer who developed a high-frequency alternator.

"Tesla did more to excite interest and create an intelligent understanding [of radio frequencies] than anyone else. ... [Tesla was] a man who we are now compelled in the light of modern experience and knowledge, to admit was a prophet ... [He] was so far ahead of his time the best of us then mistook him for a dreamer."

John Stone Stone, (1869 1943) physicist and inventor. Minutes of the Annual Meeting of the AIEE, May 18, 1917 – at the presentation of the Edison Medal to Nikola Tesla

"If you let me I’ll express with an image, Maxwell has across great depth, which separate light and heat from one side, and magnetism and electricity from other side, throw one wire... Today Tesla builds a bridge by which you could without any danger cross from heat and light into magnetism and electricity."

Djordje Stanojevic, (1858-1921) Serbian physicist, the reputable professor of The Grand School in Belgrade and the pioneer of electrification in Serbia.
