Outside Repositories & Private Collections

The documents in Parts I-V of the image edition were selected from among the approximately 5 million pages of Edison-related material in the archives of the National Park Service's Thomas Edison National Historical Park (TENHP) in West Orange, N.J. However, thousands of additional documents have been located in more than one hundred repositories and private collections. Especially significant are the collections of Edison documents at the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village Research Center, Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Library of Congress, National Archives, New-York Historical Society, New York Public Library, Smithsonian Institution, Wichita State University, and Yale University and the private collection of Charles Hummel. Additional collections of family correspondence owned by the Charles Edison Fund, Edison-Ford Winter Estates, Chautauqua Institution, and David E. E. Sloane can be found in the Edison-Miller Family Records Series.

The links are to the item sets (folder or volume) for each collection.
