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 consists of requests for employment at the West Orange laboratory, some in answer to newspaper advertisements. Among the items for 1906 are drafts of help-wanted advertisements; a statement of services for October 1906 by attorney Delos Holden; and an undated "Constitution of the Muckers of Edison Laboratory" describing the composition of a self- styled association of Edison laboratory employees. A statement of company payrolls for the years 1895-1906 can be found in D-06-06 (Edison, T.A. - General).
Approximately 5 percent of the documents have been selected. The items not selected consist primarily of requests for employment at the West Orange laboratory. Some of them contain perfunctory Edison marginalia. Several examples of such requests have been selected.
