This folder contains correspondence requesting Edison to write articles, correspondence relating to articles about Edison or his inventions, and letters from journalists seeking to interview Edison or solicit his statements for publication. Among the documents for 1908 are letters from Theodore Dreiser at The Delineator and a typescript of an Edison interview prepared for the New York World. Also included are letters and memoranda regarding the projected biography of Edison by Frank L. Dyer and T. Commerford Martin and the hiring of William H. Meadowcroft as Dyer's assistant.
