The three scrapbooks in this series cover the periods September 1888-May 1889 and October 1894. The books contain clippings from newspapers, popular magazines, and technical journals regarding Edison's attempt to determine the etiology and control the spread of yellow fever, the controversy surrounding his dispute with Ezra T. Gilliland and John C. Tomlinson, and the introduction of the kinetoscope in England. One book (Cat. 1077) also contains clippings from 1880-1881 relating to the development of microscopya subject peripheral to Edison's own work; these clippings have not been selected.
In addition to these items, the Scrapbook Collection at the Edison National Historical Park contains a few nontechnical scrapbooks with clippings from the period 1887-1898. For example, a book entitled "Mrs. Edison's Souvenirs" (cat. 30,097) contains invitations, programs, and other mementos from the period 1891-1928. A finding aid for this record group is available at ENHP. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
