This folder contains correspondence from or about employees and former or prospective employees. Included are Edison's handwritten notes regarding various employees, requests by former employees for letters of recommendation, and letters about other personnel matters. The responses by Edison on many of the documents indicate that little hiring took place due to the economic downturn beginning in 1893.
Approximately 30 percent of the documents have been selected. Most of the documents not selected are routine requests for employment that did not receive a significant reply. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
