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 Edison’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.
