This folder contains correspondence and other documents requesting Edison to write articles; correspondence relating to articles about Edison and his inventions; and letters from journalists seeking to interview Edison. Most of the items pertain to Edison's x-ray experiments. Included are letters from Thomas Commerford Martin, who interviewed Edison for a symposium on x-rays published in Century magazine; and an undated manuscript regarding Edison and the x-ray, compiled by Francis Leon Chrisman.
Approximately 70 percent of the documents have been selected. The following categories of documents have not been selected: routine requests for Edison to write articles or grant interviews (such requests often received a response that Edison was "too busy" to comply); other routine correspondence regarding articles and interview arrangements; letters of transmittal; duplicate copies of selected items.
