Their products became internationally known with the trademark “Megger.” They also investigated the magnetic phenomena in the cores of transformers, permanent magnets, and the physical structure of non-conductors. He devised a helm indicator and important gun controls for the Navy used in WW I. The company was taken over by AVO International in 1986.«[Date of death from obituary which says it was a "couple of days after passing his 82nd birthday" implying the date of birth above.

"Sheldon, the doctor needs a pair of your underwear!"
