I didn't realize Japan attacked off the shore of Monterey in 1941.
The Japanese submarine attack that occurred just 20 miles off the shore of Monterey in 1941, in addition to the fact that the mile-deep Monterey Bay Canyon provided the ideal entry point for more submarines, may have inspired Kenneth to take his own preemptive measures. With only an eighth-grade education, Kenneth installed a custom-made “submarine-stopping device.” This involved burying a spoked wheel of railroad ties in the center of his property and building two obelisks (tall stone pillars with pyramidal tops) on either side. One pillar sent radio signals to submarines and the other received them, supposedly jamming up the signals for enemy crafts.
