NOV 29 1941
Largest mercury vapor lamp of its type yet developed is here being studied in a refrigerator at the Westinghouse Lamp Division, Bloomfield, N.J., by S.G. Hibben, Director of Applied Lighting.
Westinghouse expects that the big lamp, which is 55 inches long, may be used to brighten the torch of the Statue of Liberty.
It was developed primarily, however, for high intensity lighting in industrial plants.
Winter cold and gales are simulated in this refrigerator to study the lamp.
