28. Seifer, Marc J., "Nikola Tesla: The Lost Wizard," Tesla '84: Proceedings of the Tesla
Centennial Symposium, op. cit., pgs. 31-40. Seifer,
a psychologist, believes Tesla suffered a nervous breakdown catalyzed
by the death of one the partners in the Tesla Electric Company
and the shooting of Stanford White, the noted architect, who had
designed Wardenclyffe. Seifer places this in 1906 and cites as
evidence a letter from George Scherff, Tesla's secretary:
Dear Mr. Tesla:
I have received
your letter and am glad to know you are vanquishing
your illness. I have scarcely ever seen you so out of sorts
as last Sunday; and I was frightened.

taking place about 1907. Having lost most of his money and many
of his friends and seeing less talented people praised for achievements
based on his inventions "exerted a corrosive and lasting
effect on his personality."
