This folder contains carbon copies of ongoing correspondence similar (and, in many cases, identical) to the items found in the Letterbook Series. The letters, which were originally fastened together in a two-ring binder, are primarily by Edison and his personal assistant, William H. Meadowcroft. The recipients include longtime associates Sigmund Bergmann and T. Commerford Martin and industrialist Edsel B. Ford. Most of the selected items for 1914 relate to the fire of December 9, 1914, that destroyed or damaged more than half of the buildings in the West Orange laboratory complex.
Approximately 10 percent of the documents have been selected. The material not selected consists of duplicates, letters of transmittal and acknowledgment, and other routine correspondence. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
