These letters from April-May 1915 concern Edison's possible appearance at a dinner in his honor at Carnegie Hall, sponsored by the Civic Forum. Included is discussion of Edison's reluctance to attend, Ford's willingness to participate only if Edison were present, and Mina Miller Edison's insistence that her husband accept the invitation. The letters are by Robert Ely, director of the Civic Forum; Ernest G. Liebold, Ford's personal secretary; and William H. Meadowcroft, Edison's personal assistant. Also included is a printed preliminary program listing the speakers at the event. Courtesy of the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village Research Center.
