This folder contains correspondence from or about employees and prospective employees. There are also letters soliciting Edison's opinion regarding former employees seeking positions elsewhere. Most of the correspondence relates to employment requests for the West Orange laboratory, some in answer to newspaper advertisements. The correspondents include industrialists Alfred I. DuPont and Samuel Insull, as well as laboratory employees Selden G. Warner and William Walter Dinwiddie, who were offered positions in 1911. Other employees mentioned in the documents include Maurice E. Fox in Russia, chemist Ignacy Goldstein, and Goldstein's assistant Dr. G. Rosenstein.
Approximately 25 percent of the documents have been selected. The selected items are primarily letters by Edison and incoming correspondence bearing substantive Edison marginalia. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
