The Contract, from Tesla

In Nikola Tesla’s original contract with George Westinghouse, the inventor was promised a bonus of $2.50 for every horsepower of alternating current sold. But making Tesla’s AC motor was expensive, and Westinghouse soon told Tesla he wouldn’t be able to pay him what was originally promised.
“Tesla” premieres on October 18 at 9/8c on PBS.
