These folders contain reminiscences about Edison by his associates and employees. The reminiscences were collected by William H. Meadowcroft during the research for the biography, Edison: His Life and Inventions, by Frank L. Dyer and T. Commerford Martin. Some of the reminiscences are prefaced by explanatory or additional correspondence. The folders are arranged alphabetically by author: William S. Andrews, William G. Bee, Charles T. Hughes, Samuel Insull, Edward H. Johnson, Walter S. Mallory, and Francis R. Upton. The Andrews material includes several letters pertaining to a meeting of the Illuminating Engineering Society in 1907 at which Edison and his early electrical work were recalled, along with the transcribed minutes of that meeting. Reminiscences subsequently published by Edward G. Acheson and Francis Jehl have not been selected.
