The Brookhaven, N. Y., Town Historic Trust has taken one of the town's laboratories under its wing and designated it an “historic site.” Not the laboratory that has made the town world famous, but that of Nicola Tesla, the electrical pioneer who rivaled Thomas A. Edison and whose induction motor won preference for ac power over dc. The building, which is on the north shore of Long Island, was designed by the famous architect Stanford White in 1902 and occupied by the Croatian‐born inventor who came to the United States by way of Graz and Prague. It belongs now to Peerless Photo Products.
