I have to agree, I think the possibility of the 'Searle Disc' opens the doors for present day research into Anti-Gravity technology.
I don't think the devices ever reached a height of more than 50 feet, but if he did manage it, it could be regarded as proof that Anti-Gravity is possible. There's always the possibility that they may have worked under some other principle that he was not aware of, one which exhibited the same results as would be expected from something that is anti-gravity - but either way, he must have been pretty pleased with the results.
