This folder contains correspondence from or about employees and prospective employees. There are also letters soliciting Edison's opinion regarding former employees seeking employment 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 1910 are documents pertaining to the employment of Sydney W. Ashe, Donald M. Bliss, Newman Henry Holland, and violinist Arturo Nutini. There are also letters concerning the estates of Charles Batchelor and John Kruesi.
Approximately 40 percent of the documents have been selected. The items not selected consist primarily of unsuccessful applications for employment at the laboratory.
