This folder contains correspondence and other documents relating to a performing musical group of Edison Storage Battery Co. (ESBCo) employees variously known as the Edison Brass Band or the Edison Industries Band. Almost all of the items for 1918 are responses to job advertisements, placed in music magazines by band director Prof. Henry Restorff, seeking office and factory workers with performing skills and experience on various instruments. ESBCo office manager Robert F. Roh handled the correspondence with prospective employees, explaining duties and rates of pay. Other documents relate to instrument repair, performance engagements for the band, a uniform order, and price lists. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
