William Terbo
William Terbo’s grandmother, Angelina, was Nikola Tesla’s eldest sister.  Mr. Terbo was dedicated to preserving Tesla’s legacy and bringing light to his lasting contributions to humanity.  He was a founding Director, Chairman of the Executive Board, and Executive Secretary of the Tesla Memorial Society, Inc.  A graduate of Purdue University, Mr. Terbo worked in the missile and space industry in Los Angeles, and co-founded a business in solid-state electronics and cryogenics.  Mr. Terbo spoke regularly on the personality, ideals, and accomplishments of Nikola Tesla. William Terbo is survived by his wife, Boyana, and many admirers who will long remember him for his efforts to preserve and pay tribute to his famous great-uncle, Nikola Tesla.

Congratulations to the winners of TSCW’s Goosebumps 2 contest!
Grand Prize Winner: Ginny Fortunato
2nd Place Winners: Tim McKinney and Tom Hunsberger

Goosebumps 2 is an action adventure film that tells an exciting tale based on the mysteries surrounding Tesla’s Wardenclyffe laboratory and his legendary wireless transmitting tower. Our Goosebumps 2 contest challenged fans to correctly identify nine Tesla-related objects hidden in a pictogram; correct answers were entered in a random drawing.  Grand Prize winner Ginny Fortunato won a Goosebumps 2 movie night for 15 people, and second-place winners Tim McKinney and Tom Hunsberger each won tickets and movie snacks for 2.

Opening in theaters around the world from October through winter 2019, Goosebumps 2 is a great movie for the holiday season, and we hope Tesla fans get a chance to see this exciting fictionalized tale featuring Wardenclyffe!
