These seventeen books were used by Charles F. (Frank) Hunter, supervisor of the Edison Chemical Works, during 1915-1921 as a daily record of work. Some of the entries refer to numbered experiments, while others contain bureaucratic and administrative notations or rough calculations. Included are experiments pertaining to cement for furnaces, iron mix production, nickel runs, and graphite mixes. The administrative notes contain information regarding personnel, meetings Hunter attended, phone calls he made and took, and other matters. Also included is information pertaining to the Chemical Works Fire Department. One notebook from the World War I era (N-18-07-09) contains a list of wartime slogans, such as "we are making nickel to nick the kaiser," "give the acid test for the kaiser," and "Hindenburg says blood & iron; we will furnish the iron, they the blood."
