Established Albert Roy Davis Research Laboratory, Green Cove Springs, Florida, 1936, dedicated to research and development of magnetic effects to organic and non-organic systems from my initial discovery of the two separate energies of magnetism.

Wrote and submitted technical papers in 1946 dealing with the existence and results of thermal emissions (radioactive fallout) as the aftereffect of the atomic bomb. Acknowledged by the Atomic Energy Commission. Congressman Charles E. Bennett (Florida) assisted in obtaining this acknowledgement. General King, USMC, and Colonel Tisdale aided in the primary investigations into the existence of prior knowledge of this secondary effect of the atomic bomb. This then advanced the knowledge that I was one of the first non-official scientists to make this condition known and provable.
