You might look into the archives of the "Old Old Timers Club".

About ten years ago their journal had the first-hand account of a young 
man monitoring the effort of Major Squiers to use trees as antennas at the 
Presidio in SF before WW=I.  As I recall the effort was a failure but 
Squiers did not give up; he went on to become the Commanding Officer of
the U.S. Signal Corps while the young man went on to be the CEO of IT&T.

Interesting history.
