All,



Alfred P. Morgan wrote for young technology and science hobbyists for a good many decades. Some of his work has become available on line. His "Adventures in Electrochemistry" gets my vote for electrolysis, electric cell, and battery projects. His battery and cell projects will power simple transistor circuits.

His much earlier work "Wireless Telegraphy and Telephony Simply Explained" includes schematic reading, making spiral coils, sliding variable capacitor, elevated horizontal loop antennas, sliding coil contacts, many detectors, and assembly drawings for a good many other things. (This one brings back memories of my first transistor-radio project and its homemade coil with a sliding contact.)

Happy experimenting,



Steven

I have a few of his "electronics for boys" books.�� He did the drawings as well -- quite the talent overall, I'd say!
