The Alexander Elliott, Jr., Papers cover the period 1880-1905. The papers relate to Elliott's legal activities for Edison and to Elliott's own law practice. Included are administrative and financial documents; notes, lists, and reports; accounts, claims, and receipts; property descriptions; and contracts, leases, and other legal documents. The material relates primarily to Elliott's work as counsel for the New Jersey and Pennsylvania Concentrating Works (NJPCW), but some documents pertain to the Edison Portland Cement Co. and other companies associated with Edison. Most of the documents concern Elliott's administration of real estate interests. Other subjects include accidents, tax and insurance matters, state reporting requirements, company financial obligations, and minor litigation. There is also some material of a personal nature, including records from Elliott's private law practice. A finding aid is available at the Edison National Historical Park. Most of the selected items deal with Edison's direct involvement with Elliott.
The documents are arranged in the following order: (1) Incoming Correspondence; (2) Letterbooks; (3) Reports; (4) Business & Legal Activities.
