These records cover the period 1890-1899. They consist primarily of administrative and financial documents relating to insurance and tax matters, capital stock increases, directors' meetings, and state reporting requirements. Some of the material pertains to building contracts, claims for damages, and minor litigation involving the company. Most of the documents deal with reporting requirements for certified increases in the company's capital stock. The records relating to taxes and fees mainly concern the State of New Jersey, but there are also documents pertaining to the payments made to New York State and to Sparta Township in Sussex County, N.J. In addition, there are items concerning a salary dispute with Owen J. Conley, general superintendent of the Ogden works during the period 1892-1897, including an incomplete document containing Edison's testimony.
Most of the material is perfunctory. Less than one percent of the documents have been selected. The selected material includes an assessment of properties (1890); reports to New York and New Jersey regarding the company's place of business and capital investments (1892); a list relating to insurance on buildings and machinery at the Ogden works (ca. 1895); and documents pertaining to Conley's salary dispute (1897-1899).
