The St. Louis Motor
Greenslade, Thomas B., Jr.
Physics Teacher, v49 n7 p424-425 Oct 2011
The St. Louis Motor, invented in 1909, is unique among physics apparatus for being named for a geographical place rather than a physicist. The sturdy little device (Fig. 1) has never been out of production. Any older school or physics department that has not done a catastrophic housecleaning in the last 20 years will certainly have a small flock of them in the back room.
