Nikola Tesla in the Sourcebook Project (William R. Corliss)

It's not a surprise to find the name Tesla in one or more sourcebooks compiled by William R. Corliss.
Tesla is mentioned on page 408 in the book Mysterious Universe, a handbook of astronomical anomalies (1979); in the article Marking on Mars (British Astronomical Association, 1900) :
  • A telegram fom New York appearing in the Standard of january 4, says that Mr.Tesla is prepared to construct a machine which will carry sufficient energy to Mars to operate delicate telephone and telegraph instruments.

Of course, we are talking here of the era in which intelligent life on Mars was supposed to be a possible fact, and to try to communicate with the Martian civilisation was the topic of the day.
