Background
Margaret Hart was born in 1915 in Salinas, California. Her father, Fred Hart, a proponent of electronic medicine and an innovator, received patents for the Oscilloclast and other treatment devices. He volunteered at the Electronic Medical Foundation, eventually becoming president of the College of Electronic Medicine in San Francisco. After a ten-year battle with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration over the validity of treatment with electronic frequencies, the Foundation was dissolved. Fred Hart's other enterprises included running for state senator and establishing the first radio station in San Jose, KQW.
