Tesla under rug swept

Interesting site (link here) about a 3rd & 4th grade schoolteacher who has provided over $120,000 worth of $6000 busts of Nikola Tesla to various universities, libraries, and institutions... except the Smithsonian.

 

"This is a photograph of our finished bust we offered to the Smithsonian. Dr. Bernard S. Finn, (Curator of the Division of Electricity and Modern Physics) refused us, claiming he had no use for it.

We could not understand why the Smithsonian would have no use for a $6,000 bust of such a great American and eminent scientist."
