Chapman, Laboratory Engineer; Kurt Bley, Shop Foreman; Ralph R. Beal, Assistant Chief Engineer; and Adrian L. Anderson, Factory Engineer). The original Poulsen 100 kw arc, brought from Denmark by Cyril Elwell, is on the table at left. On the right is the first model made by Federal. The first of six 500 kw arcs, built for the U.S. Navy, stands behind the group. It was eventually installed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. This photograph was featured on page 59 of Jane Morgan's book "Electronics in the West" with this caption: Federal Telegraph engineers in front of powerful 500 kw arc. Many were used by the U.S. Navy for world-wide communication. On the table at left is original Poulsen arc from Denmark; at right is first model made by Federal. (L to R) Leonard F.
