Miss. Charlotte Muzar was the secretary and assistant to Nikola Tesla’s nephew Ambassador Sava N. Kosanovic. She wrote two Tesla articles:

  1. Tesla Funeral and final resting place. (click here to read)
  2. The Tesla papers. (Page 1 | Page 2 | Page 3 | Page 4 | Page 5)

Miss Charlotte Muzar has personal knowledge about the events following Tesla’s death: his funeral, cremation and “missing” Tesla papers.

Miss Muzar’s testimonial writings are therefore of enormous importance.

Nikola Tesla’s nephew, Ambassador Sava N. Kosanovic was the administrator of Tesla’s estate. Mr. Kosanovic was the minister of the State of Yugoslavia and a member of theYugoslav Mission to the United States in New York, from June 1942 to October 1944. Mr. Kosanovic was the Yugoslav Ambassador to the United States, in Washington D.C. from July 1946 to May 1950.

Tesla Papers

Nikola Tesla died on January 7th, 1943 in Hotel New Yorker, in Manhattan, in room 3327 on the 33rd floor of the hotel. Immediately after Tesla’s death, Tesla scientific papers vanished from his hotel room in Hotel New Yorker. Tesla papers were never found. Tesla papers contained scientific data and information about “Death Rays”, which could be used for military purposes.

In 1947 the Military Intelligence service identified the writings about the particle-beam contained in Tesla’s scientific papers as “extremely important.” Military intelligence services of the USA, Germany and USSR were vitally interested in Tesla’s “Death Rays”.

The current beam-weapon program is originated from Tesla’s “Death Rays” idea.


Tesla claimed of having invented a “death ray” capable of destroying 10,000 enemy airplanes at a distance of 250 miles (400 kilometers).

On July 23, 1934 Time Magazine wrote an article about Tesla’s Ray:

“Last week Dr. Tesla announced a combination of four inventions which would make war unthinkable.

Nucleus of the idea is a death ray-a concentrated beam of sub-microscopic particles flying at velocities approaching that of light. The beam, according to Tesla, would drop an army in its tracks, bring down squadrons of airplanes 250 miles away. Inventor Tesla would discharge the ray by means of 1) a device to nullify the impeding effect of the atmosphere on the particles 2)a method for setting up high potential 3) a process for amplifying that potential to 50,000.000 volts; 4) creation of “a tremendous electrical repelling force.”
