This folder contains correspondence from or about employees and prospective employees. There are also letters soliciting Edison's opinion regarding former employees seeking positions elsewhere. Most of the correspondence relates to employment requests for the West Orange laboratory.
Approximately 25 percent of the documents have been selected. They consist of letters by Edison or bearing substantive Edison marginalia; a letter from a disgruntled employee; and a letter from Herman E. Dick arranging employment for his son, Leslie.
One additional document from the Edison Pioneers Collection was added to this folder in June 2009: a letter of recommendation by Edison on behalf of John Oskar Roos, who returned to his native Sweden in 1903 to become an engineer in the testing laboratory at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
