I read a book by Preston Nichols about Montauk and music and laughed my head off. He is a really funny guy.
Fascinating two-parter from the US Observer magazine on the background to the Philadelphia Experiment:

"Inspiration for an invisible ship like the one featured in the PE can be found as far back as 1917. Woodrow Wilson was president, the country had just entered the First World War, and light bulb-guy Thomas Edison was hot on the trail of a solution to the German submarine problem (the same problem cited as motivation for the PE)."
