These documents consist of seven sets of reminiscences prepared by Edison during the period 1908-1909 for the biography, Edison: His Life and Inventions, by Frank L. Dyer and T. Commerford Martin. Also included is a compilation by William H. Meadowcroft of Edison's impressions of Europe in 1911. The reminiscences have been assigned letters from "A" through "H."
Transcriptions of Edison's reminiscences appear as appendixes to each volume of the book edition of The Papers of Thomas A. Edison; only those portions dealing with the period covered by a volume are reproduced in that volume. The reminiscences are presented in their entirety in the Part IV microfilm edition. However, variant versions of the same material have not been selected. Items "D" and "G" in the microfilm edition are photocopies made by the editors from the originals at the Edison Winter Home in Fort Myers, Florida.
