This folder contains correspondence and other documents relating to Edison's past work in the electrical industry, as well as inquiries and suggestions about electric lighting. Among the items for 1918 is an inquiry regarding the value of stock in the defunct Edison Electric Light Co. of Europe Ltd. Also included are comments by Edison about a vaudeville trick of lighting a lamp through a human body.
Approximately 15 percent of the documents, including all items bearing Edison marginalia, have been selected. Most of the unselected letters received a routine reply stating that Edison was no longer involved in the electric light business. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
