This folder contains correspondence and other documents relating to Edison's membership and activities in social clubs and professional societies. Some of the items bear perfunctory Edison marginalia, often stating that he is too busy or is not feeling well enough to attend social functions. Others, such as a banquet invitation from the Committee for the Entertainment of President Roosevelt, contain the notation, "no ans."
Approximately 30 percent of the documents have been selected. Items not selected consist primarily of requests that Edison declined and invitations to which he did not respond.
