Einstein   ? Tesla ?   Steinmetz

In 1921, Albert Einstein, then the world's greatest scientist, while traveling in the U.S., was invited to visit the General Electric Laboratories in New York State. There, he met and, was photographed with, two great scientist/inventors, the brilliant hunchbacked dwarf, Charles Steinmetz, and the controversial Transylvanian, Nikolai Tesla. Steinmetz was GE's chief scientist. Tesla, inventor and early proponent of AC electrical power, was a life-long rival of Thomas Edison, founder of the General Electric Company.

A photo of this meeting, located in the GE Archives and made available by UPI, curiously shows only Einstein and Steinmetz.
