This folder contains correspondence relating to the widely publicized development of Edison's poured concrete house. Much of the material consists of unsolicited inquiries regarding the unique nature, quick construction, and low cost of the projected house. Also included are requests to view or display Edison's one-quarter scale model as well as correspondence concerning concrete construction generally. Many of the unsolicited letters contain Edison marginalia, usually indicating that a prepared circular be sent in response.
Less than 10 percent of the documents have been selected. With the exception of a few samples, unsolicited inquiries have not been selected.
