Electrical Experimenter

Electrical Experimenter was one of the early magazine ventures of the renowned Hugo Gernsback. The first monthly issue was in May 1913 and the magazine continued and grew through this final issue of July 1920, after which it continued publication under its new name, Science & Invention.

Hugo Gernsback immigrated to the U.S. in 1904 from Luxembourg to market an improved dry cell battery he had developed. He accumulated 80 patents in his lifetime, some on the eccentric side. But he is best known as a leading publisher of radio and science magazines and is credited with establishing science fiction as a unique literary form. He wrote an important science fiction novel himself, Ralph 124C 41+, in 1925. He started the magazine Amazing Stories in 1926, the first publication devoted to science fiction. Today's annual science fiction achievement awards are named the Hugo in his honor.

Gernsback's publications were amazingly extensive. To name a few: Air Wonder Stories, Amazing Detective Stories, French Humor, Know Yourself, Gadgets, Modern Electrics, Pirate Stories, Radio News, Radio-Craft, Radio and Television, Science Wonder Stories, Sexology, Short-Wave and Television, Television, Television News, Wonder Stories, and Woman's Digest. Gernsback died in 1967 at the age of 83.

Electrical Experimenter began in 1913 as a thin magazine with primitive covers but two years later Gernsback added the colorful and creative covers that became the hallmark of his magazine empire.
