1920 memo from Bruno Wolnitzky, who ran the Edison Service Record Club, to Thomas Edison asking to move to a vacated office in his laboratory. Edison's written reply was "OK".
Autograph memo signed "B Wolnitzky." and "TAE", both in pencil. 1 page, 8¼x11, ruled paper. May 8, 1920. Note from Wolnitzky in full: "Memo To Mr T. A. Edison: I understand that next Monday Sumner Williams is going to move to the purchasing department vacating the small office he actually has on the second floor of the Laboratory building. I actually am occupying a very large office on the same floor of the Laboratory which can be used to better advantage either by some of your men or John V. Miller who has a large staff. Will you allow me to take this small office which will be vacated by Sumner Williams? Remaining in the latter office I will always be near from Charles for whom I will be working most of the time as also you can get in a minute's notice." Reply from Edison in full: "OK". WOLNITZKY was an employee of Thomas Edison who ran the Edison Service Record Club, an early form of modern record clubs. EDISON (1847-1931, born in Milan, Ohio) patented more than a thousand inventions, including the incandescent electric lamp, phonograph (his favorite invention), mimeograph, alkaline storage battery and microphone. In 1890, he invented the Vitascope, and Edison is credited with establishing the standard of using 35mm film with four perforations on the edges. He produced talking motion pictures in 1913. In 1887, Edison had set up his facility dedicated to research and development in West Orange, New Jersey. By the following year, it was the world's largest scientific testing laboratory. His original laboratory, in Menlo Park, New Jersey, was removed to the Greenfield Village Museum in Dearborn, Michigan by his friend, Henry Ford, in 1929. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Small pinhole and rust stain near left edge, which touches Wolnitzky's handwriting but not his signature. Missing left corners. Tears and nicks at all edges and upper corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
