There are a variety of special collections in the archives of the Edison National Historical Park (ENHP). They range from single items that do not fit into the main record groups to extensive collections that were donated to, or purchased by, the ENHP. Four collections, containing documents for the period 1879–1886, have been selected: (1) Thomas A. Edison Diary, (2) Charles Batchelor Collection, (3) Francis R. Upton Collection, and (4) John Kruesi Collection.
Although the documents in most of these collections span the chronological parts of the Thomas A. Edison Papers digital edition, all of the selected items appear in Part II in order to preserve the integrity of the collections. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
