Harry Houdini’s Wallet:

The wallet causes “ghosts” to haunt a person. Before Houdini died, he made a pact with his wife, Bess, that if he could, he would return and give her a message from the other side (a coded message only the two knew). For 10 years after he died Bess held seances, waiting for him to return. Once the 10 years passed, she gave it up after no contact from him.

Nicola Tesla:

In 1882, Tivadar Puskás got Tesla another job in Paris with the Continental Edison Company. Tesla began working in what was then a brand new industry, installing indoor incandescent lighting citywide in the form of an electric power utility. The company had several subdivisions and Tesla worked at the Société Electrique Edison, the division in the Ivry-sur-Seine suburb of Paris in charge of installing the lighting system. There he gained a great deal of practical experience in electrical engineering. Management took notice of his advanced knowledge in engineering and physics and soon had him designing and building improved versions of generating dynamos and motors. They also sent him on to troubleshoot engineering problems at other Edison utilities being built around France and in Germany.
