Wiki: Comfort A. Adams Wiki

While a student (at Case) he helped physicist Albert Michelson with his famous Michelson-Morley experiment which results confirmed the theory of Albert Einstein.

He had a longtime interest in welding technology, and contributed a number of significant improvements to that art. During World War I he chaired the Welding Committee of the Emergency Fleet Corporation, which sought to increase production and reduce costs. The American Welding Society was a direct out-growth of this work, and Adams became its first president.

He was the first to make large-scale application of alternating current to welding, and designed the first alternating-current transformer for welding use; this equipment was later used to weld the three-inch-thick steel penstocks, which carried water to the turbines at Boulder Dam.  -30-
