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 1907 are letters from former Edison employees Calvin T. Freid and R. D. Casterline, along with a financial statement of the Edison Employees Emergency Association.
Approximately 10 percent of the documents have been selected. The items not selected consist primarily of unsuccessful applications for employment at the laboratory.
