This scrapbook covers the periods August 1880-October 1881 and September 1888-January 1889. At the beginning of the book are clippings from 1880-1881 regarding the technical and scientific development of microscopy. Following the microscopy material are clippings relating to Edison's attempt to control the spread of yellow fever. Much of the experimental work in this matter was conducted by Arthur E. Kennelly, and several of the citations inscribed above the clippings are in Kennelly's hand. Near the end of the book is one loose clipping describing some of the electrocution experiments also supervised by Kennelly at the West Orange laboratory. The book is part of the Menlo Park Scrapbook Series; many of the items in that series can be found in earlier parts of the digital edition. The spine is labeled "T.A. Edison. No. 59." The book contains 144 numbered pages; pages 45-144 are blank.
Only the yellow fever material (pages 23-43) has been selected. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
