These three letters from Robert A. Miller, Jr., to his aunt Mina Miller Edison date from 1917 and 1931. The first letter, written from a military camp shortly after the entry of the United States into World War I, discusses Robert's hopes for a commission and his attitude toward the war. The other two letters, written in August and October 1931, refer to Edisonâ€™s declining health and public sentiment regarding his imminent death.
Additional letters by Robert A. Miller, Jr.can be found elsewhere in the Part V Family Records Series and in the Charles Edison Fund Collection. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
