Company Details

Menlo Park Manufacturing Company

This company was incorporated in New York in 1879 to promote Edison's patent medicine "Polyform" as a treatment for neuralgia, rheumatism, and headaches among other illnesses. The company relocated to Boston in 1884, with Edison's patent application still pending (it was never issued). The firm was apparently never profitable and in tried to reorganize as the Edison Polyform Company but Edison objected to further attempts to market polyform.
