THOMASEDISON (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. THOMAS EDISON, JR. (1876-1935) was the first son of inventor Thomas Alva Edison. His father nicknamed his older sister Marion Estelle Edison and him nicknamed "Dot" and "Dash", respectively, after the Morse code terms. Lightly toned and creased. Missing right corner. Lightly torn at top and left edges. Tackhead-sized hole, staple holes, paper clip impression and rust stain at upper left corner.
