This folder contains correspondence, reports, and other documents relating to the business of EOMS and its development of the Dunderland iron deposits. Most of the letters are to or from Edison. Among the other correspondents are Herman E. Dick, a director of the Syndicate, and other EOMS officials, such as Francis Hungerford Pollen, managing director; J. Hall, Jr. and Edward H. Beazley, secretaries; and Sir Joseph Lawrence, chairman. Included are Edison's instructions for designing the iron concentration plant at Dunderland, along with undated notes by Edison regarding the estimated costs of labor and materials. A few letters request Edison's presence in England and Norway. Other documents pertain to ore analyses, potential mill sites, surveys by Theodore Lehmann, and the depletion of iron deposits in Spain.
Also included is a report on magnetic hematite separation written by E. Windsor Richards, a Syndicate member and consultant, following his visit with Edison at West Orange and his inspection of Edison's installations at the Edison Portland Cement Co. and the New Jersey Zinc Co. In addition, there are two evaluations by Professor Henry Louis, engineering consultant, pertaining to briquettes; and a report by Theodore Turrettini, a designer of water power installations at Niagara Falls and Geneva, Switzerland, concerning the Renfossen Waterfall at Dunderland as a source of power.
Approximately 80 percent of the documents have been selected. The documents not selected include a report on iron mines in Algeria by Theodore Lehmann.
